Malaysian MD2 pineapples shipped to Osaka

According to the Malaysian Pineapple Industry Board (MPIB), the MD2 pineapple variety is now being exported to Osaka, Japan. MPIB chairman, Sheikh Umar Bagharib Ali, said a container with a load of 4,355 pineapples from Aqina Fruits Sdn Bhd’s plantation was exported to Japan today.

He said: “Japan has long been importing pineapples from Malaysia but this time, MPIB and several companies have managed to penetrate the Osaka market in addition to Tokyo previously. We will assist as many industry players that contribute to Malaysia’s pineapple export value.”

Sheikh Umar said Malaysia exported pineapple-based products worth RM1.148 billion in 2022, up from RM1.106 billion in 2021. To date, there are close to 20 countries exporting pineapple products including Singapore, Egypt, China and Japan.
