Passed customs in Nagoya (Japan) without a hitch

Weihai city port exports freeze-dried figs for the first time

Figs are soft and sweet and extremely good for your health. As an important domestic production area of figs, Weihai's specific, geographical and climatic conditions are perfect. Everywhere, in both city and countryside, figs are widely distributed. On the 13th January of 2008, the logo (figs depicted in Weihai surroundings) was officially registered as a trademark and became the first certified trademark for figs in China. However, because the peel of figs is in itself already quite fragile, and because figs are not easily stored or transported, the area in which figs are marketed is limited. Exporting figs is even more complicated.

Light skinned figs from Weihai

Recently, thanks to freeze-drying, a company in Shandong was able to export 200 kilograms of figs, with a value of 5400 American dollars. The figs passed tests by the department in charge of exports, and smoothly cleared the customs in Nagoya (Japan). This is the first time Weihai has managed to successfully export dried figs.

Freeze-dried, refers to foodstuff that was dried in a vacuum at freezing temperatures. By applying the technique of freeze-drying the color and taste of fresh food can be preserved for longer. If no other preservatives are added, the food can be conserved at room temperature for more than 5 years. This greatly facilitates transportation.
