New distribution center in Shanghai to facilitate growing cherry demand

Shipments of Canadian and US cherries to China are winding down this month, but imports from Argentina and Chile are expected in November to feed the growing demand for the fruit in China.

“There is the impression in China that cherries are precious and are good for your health,” said Jessie Chan, marketing director for Global Andes Export. “It's a very popular gift during special occasions, especially the Moon Festival and Chinese New Year.” With cherries from North America diminishing this time of year, Chinese importers will look to South American fruit to meet consumer demand, and those importers are hoping for good weather to make sure there are adequate supplies.



“Most of our volume is from Argentina and Chile,” said Chan. “The supply from South America will be very much dependent on the weather there during the next few weeks.” Prices for cherries rise during gaps in the season, like the current one between North American and South American supplies, but if there's good weather in South American cherry-producing regions, then as shipments from those regions pick up in November, prices will once again come down.



Facilitating imports this year will be a new distribution center in Shanghai. The Huizhan Fruit and Vegetable Market, which is located 30 kilometers from the center of the city, consists of about 100 acres of trading areas, cold storage and office buildings. The market will be a major distribution point for fruit destined for the Northern part of China.
