US keeps shrimp purchasing power in 2022


According to NOAA data, Vietnam is one of the four largest shrimp suppliers in the US.
US shrimp imports in the first month of 2022 still have a high growth rate, which is a good sign in the context of rising inflation in the US, and the impact of consumer spending in the US. The demand for US shrimp imports is expected to increase continuously in the following months, especially when this market has reopened after covid-19.
