Vietnamese fresh lychee for sale for first time at Japanese supermarkets


The AEON Company, one of the largest retail companies in Japan, has been selling fresh Vietnamese lychee at its supermarkets in Tokyo. 

AEON said on Monday it began completing the necessary procedures to import Vietnamese lychee as soon as the Japanese authorities removed import restrictions last December. AEON Executive Officer Soichi Okazaki said Vietnamese lychee is sweet, delicious, high-quality, and has small seeds. The company plans to sell Vietnamese lychee in more than 250 supermarkets in Japan.

Vietnamese Ambassador to Japan Vu Hong Nam said, This is a great success for Vietnamese farmers, Bac Giang province, the Ministry of Industry and Trade, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and Embassy officials. We have met the technical standards of the fastidious Japanese market. If we can produce agricultural products that are acceptable to the Japanese market, we can certainly penetrate other markets”.
