Frozen whole fruit durians export

Malaysia signs export protocol with China

Malaysia has succeeded in sealing an export protocol with China for frozen whole fruit durians. The protocol was signed by Agriculture and Agro-based Industry Minister Datuk Salahuddin Ayub and General Administration of Customs Minister Ni Yuefeng. The ceremony took place at the Great Hall of the People, Beijing, and was witnessed by Prime Minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad and Chinese Premier Li Keqiang.

This is the second consecutive year Malaysia succeeds in obtaining market access to China since its success with pineapples in May 2017. Previously, Malaysia had obtained export access into China for frozen durians in the form of pulp and paste since November 2007.

The ministry said in order to fulfil the requirements of the export protocol, Malaysia would need to submit a list of durian plantations which complied with the Malaysian Good Agricultural Practices together with a list of processing facilities, as well as other details contained in the protocol for China’s approval before exports can begin.
