Impact of COVID-19 on Vietnam Cooking & Edible Oils Market

For its cooling oil usage, Vietnam is heavily reliant on neighboring nations, mainly Malaysia and Indonesia. However, temporary bans on the import of cooking oils to stop the virus from spreading across borders result in a lack of supplies on the domestic market and an increase in pricing. Due to the enormous imbalance between demand and supply, the market for cooking and edible oils in Vietnam suffered greatly.
