Hong Kong is a lucrative destination for U.S. exports of fruits and vegetables. In 2017, more than $292 million in U.S. fresh fruits and $11 million in U.S. vegetables were exported to Hong Kong. The Hong Kong market also serves as a gateway for the flow of products to regional markets with strong logistical access to Asian-based buyers and markets. USDA GAIN Report – December 10, 2018
Hong Kong is a dynamic market and an effective re-export platform of fresh fruits encompassing US$2.6 billion of gross imports and US$1.6 billion of re-exports in 2017. With zero tariffs on fruits and most agricultural products, efficient customs procedures, and transparent food regulations, market access is easy and new varieties and suppliers are always present in the market. As the third largest supplier of fruits to Hong Kong by value, the United States needs to stay competitive and expand market share by offering innovative products, maintaining superiority in quality, and educating the market on how U.S. products stand out from their competitors’.
