PETALING JAYA: Malaysia has been given the go-ahed to export frozen whole durians to China, the CNA news website reported.
It said this long-awaited announcement was made by China’s Customs Department on Thursday.
This comes 10 months after both countries signed a memorandum on the matter.
Earlier, China only allowed imports of frozen durian pulp. The vacuum-packed fruits have been exported since 2011.
Deputy Agriculture and Agro-based Industry Minister Sim Tze Tzin said the export of whole frozen durians would widen the market for Malaysian durian growers and increase their profits.
He said Malaysia’s current durian exports only accounted for 5.8% of the durian production in the country.
He said Malaysia exports 17,000 tonnes of durians to Singapore, Thailand, Hong Kong, Australia, United States and China.
China imports 300,000 tonnes of durian, mostly from Thailand, every year.
Sim said 67 farms, covering 464ha, had been selected to export frozen whole durians, mostly of the Musang King variety.

He hoped businessmen would venture into making ice cream, biscuits and cakes made from durian for export. -FMT
