LONDON — First ‘Diễn’ pomelos from the northern province of Hòa Bình are available on the shelves of Longdan supermarkets in the UK, receiving the welcome of the Vietnamese community in the country and local consumers. The first batch of 11 tonnes of Diễn pomelo from the Yên Thủy District was transported to the UK last week by Longdan, the largest importer of Vietnamese products in this country. In 2022, Longdan boosted the import of Vietnamese fresh fruits such as green pomelo, Hưng Yên longan, and Bắc Giang lychee. This year, this group will continue to import Vietnamese specialties to the UK. Longdan has a dozen supermarkets specialising in Asian products, of which Vietnamese goods account for about 30 per cent.
