(Vietnam News)

While many areas of Viet Nam's agriculture sector have struggled to gain a foothold in foreign markets, honey is enjoying he sweet taste of success abroad.

The Vietnamese Beekeepers Association reported that in the first seven months of this year, the country shipped more than 27,000 tonnes of honey to 14 countries and territories. Up to 95 percent of that amount, or more than 25,000 tonnes, went to the US.

Vietnamese honey has also found its way into the strict Australian market, itself an exporter of honey. The product also finally regained permission to return to the EU last year after a six year suspension.

With more than 1.5 million bee colonies as of the end of 2013, Viet Nam exports around 38,000 tonnes of honey a year and is among the world's top five honey purveyors.
