Mainly grown in Thailand, Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines, durian is often nicknamed the "king" of fruits. With the ever-increasing demand from the Chinese market for this fruit, Malaysia hopes to expand its exports to China.
In China, demand for durian is growing and Thailand is the main supplier. Thailand produces 600,000 tonnes of durian and exports 90 to 95% to China. Malaysia produces 300,000 tonnes of durian but exports only 5.8% or 17,000 tonnes to China. For Malaysia, durian has the potential to boost exports. The country produces 69,000 tons of the most sought-after Musang King variety, with a price in China of US $ 122 / kg in 2017.
Until recently Malaysia exported only pasta and durian processed products to China, but recently the country has been allowed to export durian as frozen whole fruits. This suggests a boom in exports to the Chinese market. The volumes exported will also increase thanks to the multiplication of plantations, especially of the variety Musang King, which is observed in the country.
