Vietnam exported over 41,000 tonnes of pepper worth $129 million in the first two months of this year, up 35% in volume, but down 7.4% in value over the same period from 2022

The average export price of the Vietnamese spice in February 2023 was $3,059 per tonne, a downturn of 11.1% compared to the previous month and 32.8% year-on-year, according to the Import-Export Department under the Ministry of Industry and Trade.

During the reviewed period, its average export price stood at $3,177 per tonne, a fall of 31.4% compared to last year's corresponding period.

The ministry has said the global pepper market is forecast to recover due to increasing demand from importers.
