Up to now, Vietnam pangasius exports to the UK market still have many opportunities for raising its market share. However, pangasius products from Vietnam have to compete strongly with whitefish products in this market. Imports of frozen cod and frozen haddock still account for a large proportion with 65% of total whitefish imports into the UK. Currently, whitefish products from China and Russia still dominate the UK market. With the advantage in export price, Vietnam pangasius exporters should set the strategies to boost exports to to the market.
