Vietnam’s tea exports rise 85% in January

February 26, 2024

With these results, the Vietnamese tea sector witnessed a substantial 85 percent year-on-year increase in both the volume and value of tea exports, the General Department of Vietnam Customs reported recently. The past month saw Vietnamese tea exported to 16 markets, one less than from the same month last year and three lower than that for the entirety of 2023. In January, Pakistan maintained its top position among the key importers of Vietnamese tea, with more than 4,556 tonnes worth nearly $9.2 million, accounting for 36.7 percent of Vietnam’s total tea export volume and 43.7 percent of its overall tea export turnover, customs data showed. It is expected that many Vietnamese tea businesses will apply technology to tea production, boost trade promotion, find new markets, and log more turnover in the coming time, contributing to improving the country’s tea export results this year, the Vietnamese Tea Association said. Last year saw the country’s tea export volume drop to the lowest level in seven years, the agency said.
