The Myanmar Avocado Producer and Exporter Association (MAPEA) says that avocados produced in Myanmar were being exported only to Malaysia under an MOU. In this avocado season, 50 tons of avocados were exported to Malaysia by air freight in two batches and the last batch will be exported in the coming week. Myanmar avocadoes were reportedly exported to Malaysia as samples and they were exported by air freight between last December and January.
MAPEA and Shan Avocado jointly exported avocado to Malaysia at the price of US$3.7 per kilogram. Shan Avocado is the organization representing avocado farmers in Shan State. Avocado is mainly grown in northern and southern Shan State and the Mandalay Region including Mogok.
