"We are about to import asparagus from Melbourne, Australia"

"We are about to import our first shipment of asparagus from Melbourne, Australia, on October 22nd. We have opted for air freight to guarantee the freshness of the asparagus, and to extend the shelf life. The overall surface area devoted to asparagus plantation in Australia is not that large, but according to our understanding, Australia exports around 50% of their asparagus production volume. At the same time, greenhouse asparagus from Yunnan are also in the middle of their export production season." This is according to Li Chaoran of Beijing Fengtai District Xinfadi Agricultural Wholesale Market.

"China is one of the larger asparagus producing countries and has a year round supply of asparagus. The peak market season for asparagus is every year between June and September. As for production volume, China is now the largest asparagus producer in the world. Peru comes second. Germany and Mexico follow. It is our understanding that overseas asparagus production volume is stable and at the same level as last year."

"As for the price, Australian asparagus are slightly more expensive than Chinese asparagus, but the product quality is also better. The main reasons for this situation are as follows: first, Australia maintains higher standards during the course of asparagus processing. Second, most of the asparagus production process in Australia is mechanized, while the Chinese asparagus industry mainly relies on manpower. Third, there is a distinct difference in the scale of asparagus farms between the two countries. For example, much of the asparagus production is scattered over individual farms and they do not benefit from large-scale production management."

"We are a modern company specialized in the retail of agricultural products in Beijing Fengtai District Xinfadi Agricultural Wholesale Market. Our main product currently is asparagus. We are actively looking for import and export partners in Peru to collaborate in asparagus export to China."
