Vietnam pangasius exports to UK up almost 70 percent in value

The exports mainly comprised frozen pangasius fillet, the most high-priced item at 5.3 USD per kilogramme.

Frozen pangasius steak exported to the UK also fetched high prices of 4.3-4.7 USD in the first months of this year.

The UK, the second largest market for Vietnam’s pangasius in the EU, is expected to remain a major buyer in Europe this year.

Its demand is expected to grow steadily and prices are likely to remain high this year, making it a attractive market for Vietnamese exporters.

Vietnam is the sixth largest supplier of white meat to the UK after Iceland, China, Norway, Russia, and the Faroe Islands.
