In the EU, Vietnam is a leading supplier of steamed/boiled vannamei shrimp and other products to supermarkets, due to the long experience in the processing industry and many ASC certified products. Vietnam is the world's largest producer of black tiger shrimp and the second largest exporter of black tiger shrimp to Europe. In contrast to black tiger shrimp from Bangladesh, a lot of black tiger shrimp from Vietnam is brought into supermarkets and high-end food service markets of Europe. The main reason is that there are already a significant number of ASC certified black tiger shrimp producers in Vietnam, so these producers can access markets where ASC certification is required. In these markets, Vietnamese exporters face little or no competition.
