SA gains approval to export to Vietnam again

South African fruit growers will be able to ship to Vietnam again with the prospects of exporting to Cambodia for the first time in the offing.

The Vietnamese agricultural department announced the news on its website on Mar. 7 that fruit imports from South Africa were compliant.

The Grape Company marketing manager Jurgen Smith said the news was a great opportunity for the fruit industry.

"At this stage the South African industry needs all the offsets it can for its fruit. With the European market at the moment being so saturated its good to have other alternatives available."

Capespan regional manager for grapes and stonefruit Niel Hugo said he was pleased with the announcement too. "It's excellent news, it's a good opportunity for us."

South African producers also received confirmation of export conditions to Cambodia which South Africa Table Grape Industry chairman, Johan Van Niekerk welcomed.

"Cambodia is new territory for us and I am sure that it holds big opportunity for South African exporters," he said.
