Irish pork products imported to Vietnam

21 January 2015

Following the successful negotiation of an agreement on the importation of Irish pork to Vietnam from Ireland, Irish pork products are now beginning to arrive in Vietnam. The first shipments have come in through Agrekepak to Duc Viet, and should be available shortly to consumers.

Vietnam officially opened its market to Irish pigmeat in September 2014, allowing imports of fresh and frozen pigmeat from Ireland. At that time, Minister Coveney welcomed the development, stating that Vietnam was “an important market in South East Asia with good prospects for Irish meat exports both in the short and long term”.
