According to data from the Trade Promotion Department (Ministry of Industry and Trade), the total area of mango growing in Vietnam is 87,000 hectares, of which the Mekong Delta accounts for 48%.
In 2021, Vietnam's mango export turnover will reach more than 180 million USD, accounting for more than 1% of the world's total mango exports.
Did you know that Vietnamese mangoes are exported worldwide to China and significant global markets such as the USA, EU, Japan, Australia, etc.?
2. The US has increasing mango imports from Vietnam.
The volume and value of Vietnam’s mangoes imported to the US have increased dramatically. In 2020, Vietnam’s mangoes imported to the US were 66% higher in volume and 70.1% higher in value than in 2019.
Among the types of mango imported into the US by Vietnam, frozen mango occupies the most significant proportion. In the past year, the US imports of frozen mangoes from Vietnam reached 1,150 tons, up 38.16% compared to 2019, accounting for 54.76% of the total volume of mangoes imported from Vietnam.
Apart from frozen mango and fresh mango, the US also imported processed mango and mango juice from Vietnam. Still, these products only accounted for a tiny proportion of the total volume of mangoes imported from Vietnam to the US. (Data from Vietnamagriculture)
It shows that the demand for importing Vietnamese mangoes into the US market is exceptionally high, which is known to be the most challenging fruit importer in the world. Americans increasingly prefer Vietnamese mangoes, and this comes from Vietnam's fertile soil, favorable climate, and delicious mango varieties.

4. How to import mango from Vietnam?
In general, the quality of Vietnamese mangoes is quite good, and the taste is easy to eat, but the disadvantage is that the skin is thin and the production quality is not uniform. Because of these characteristics, preserving fresh mangoes is often quite tricky, and it is easy to reduce the rate when exporting far away.
Therefore, if you want to import Vietnamese mango, you need to make sure mangoes meet the following criteria:
+ Irradiation treatment: Fresh mangoes must irradiate with a minimum dose of 400 Gy (the inspection agency must approve the irradiation facility of Vietnam).
+ Phytosanitary: This is a prerequisite in global trade to ensure products are free from certain insect pests.
+ Exported mangoes harvest from common growing areas: This is a vital "document" of goods, which trace when needed.
+ Must check product quality and pesticide content: Ensure the pesticide content in mango fruit is within the allowable threshold.
+ How to pack goods in boxes/packaging: Mangoes must be loaded into containers/packaging properly to ensure that the goods are still intact when exported abroad and undamaged during transportation.
