A large volume of Vietnamese mooncakes will be shipped to foreign markets in the next few weeks as the traditional Mid-Autumn Festival is on the horizon.

Mondelez Kinh Do has announced that its moon cakes are now present in the US, as well as ready to serve millions of consumers in Vietnam and other Asian countries for the upcoming festival, celebrated on the 15th day of the eighth lunar month or September 24 this year.

Apart from foreign markets, the two producers as well as their rivals Bibica, Dong Khanh, and Nhu Lan have also enhanced efforts to meet domestic consumers’ rising demand for newer designs, flavors, and packaging.
