• Vietnam’s cashew exports to the European Union

    Vietnam’s cashew exports to the European Union have seen a 15% rise. 

    The Ministry of Industry and Trade in Vietnam has projected that the country’s cashew exports to the EU in 2021 amounted to 135,000 tons, valued at 816 million USD. 

    This represents a 16.5% increase in quantity and a 7.9% rise in value compared to the previous year’s exports in 2020. 

    The demand for cashew nuts from the EU has also surged. 

    This growth can be attributed to the EU’s high demand for cashew nuts in the year’s final months, driven by the need to meet the demands of Christmas and New Year festivities. 

    It’s worth noting that the pattern of Vietnam’s cashew exports to the EU market has been variable. The focus has been primarily on exporting the main varieties of cashew nuts, namely W320 and W240.
