Published on: Sep 29 2022, 11:41
Vietnam exported 160,891 tons in the past 8 months, but over the same period Vietnam's exports have dropped sharply by 18.6%. Similarly, the pepper exports of Brazil and Indonesia also decreased by 7.4% and 12.5%, respectively.
In August, the top importers of Brazilian pepper include Vietnam (1,482 tons), Egypt (826 tons), the United Arab Emirates (754 tons) and India (513 tons). By the end of August, Vietnam had imported a record 10,732 tons of pepper from Brazil increasing 2.2 times in volume over the same period.
Vietnam is leading in importing Brazilian pepper, accounting for 21% of the country's total exports. In addition, Brazil's pepper exports to Morocco and India also increased strongly by 74.3% and 57.8%, respectively. On the other hand, Brazil's pepper exports to many other major markets such as the US, Germany, Egypt, Pakistan, etc., dropped sharply. The presence of Salmonella bacteria on pepper is still the biggest obstacle for the Brazilian pepper industry, especially the European Union (EU). Therefore, some sources believe that Brazil has exported pepper to Vietnam and India, countries with the most modern pepper sterilization technology in the world for further processing before re-exporting it back to Europe and other countries. Currently, Brazil is entering the pepper harvest, output is expected to increase by 10% compared to 2021 to 98,000 tons in 2022.
