The Vietnam Association of Seafood Exporters and Producers (VASEP) said that tuna exports in the first half of this year grew very positively. This growth is thanks to the recovery of trade and business activities of the global market after a long time of the epidemic. Food prices increased 20-40% compared to the beginning of the year, chicken prices in the US reached a record and increased 3 times compared to the previous year. Facing that situation, many importers are thinking about replacing with tuna protein products.
