The northern province of Hoa Binh announced the second batch of 18 tonnes of fresh sugarcane bound for the US at a ceremony on Wednesday.

After successfully exporting the first consignment of 20 tonnes of fresh sugarcane to the US in March this year, the province’s agricultural sector has actively worked to seek inroads into the international market for local agricultural products.

Director of the province's Sub-Department for Quality Management of Agro-Forestry and Fisheries Products Nguyen Huu Tai said that sugarcane grown in Hoa Binh is well known in the domestic market. The plant grows well in the province thanks to favourable soil and weather, and can bring high economic value.

The two export batches were the result of months of negotiations between Tien Ngan Company and a US partner. The company expects to ship between 300-500 tonnes of fresh sugarcane to several countries this year. To date, the company has shipped 300 tonnes of fresh sugarcane.

The province first exported fresh sugarcane to Japan in 2020 with 5.7 tonnes and the volume rose to 300 tonnes in 2022, with orders from demanding markets such as the Republic of Korea, the UK and the EU. — VNS
