Vietnamese avocados will conquer Australian consumers in the near future thanks to the advantages of preservation, convenience, price and quality.

The first dispatch of three tons of Vietnamese frozen avocados has been distributed in the Australian market, marking a new step in building the brand and expanding markets for the fruit.

The first shipment was conducted by Hoa Uu Dam Trading and Service Company, specializing in exporting avocados and a number of other Vietnamese specialties to the Australian market.

The fruit was ordered by agents and is expected to sell for about 7 AUD, equivalent to VND120,000 (US$5.3) per kilogram.

The export of frozen avocados was under a Vietnam Trade Office in Australia’s program since 2020.

Counsellor of the Embassy of Vietnam in Australia Pham Thi Thuy Nga said in the context that Australia has allowed the import of four varieties of Vietnamese fresh fruit, the export of frozen avocados to the market is important in terms of turnover potential and quality assurance.

The country is known as an avocado producing power, with an output of more than 87,500 tons in 2019-2020, bringing in a revenue of more than 450 million AUD (US$324 million).

The Vietnam Trade Office considers that the export potential of avocados from Vietnam to Australia is very huge and and the fruit is competitive in price and quality. 

The Vietnamese Embassy in Australia will coordinate with Vietnam Airlines to implement a  promotion program on branding and export of frozen avocados to Australia.

World major avocado producers are Mexico, Indonesia, Spain, Brazil, Peru, Chile, South Africa and some other South American countries.

In Vietnam, besides some provinces and cities, the Central Highlands region is an important growing area of avocados with 8,000ha.
