On September 10th, the newly-built Jiaxing Haiguangxing Fine Fruit Trading Center began its trial operations, forming a one-stop shopping and trading market where imports and domestic products complement each other. Only three weeks after the opening of the business, as of the end of September, the transaction volume amounted to 1,769 containers of fresh fruit, the turnover has reached 708 million yuan.
Among them, the transaction volume of main varieties of Southeast Asia, such as dragon fruit, durian, longan and jackfruit, has reached 630 containers, 316 containers, 163 containers and 75 containers respectively. They have become the most traded and most stable varieties of imported fruits. In addition, there are also 75 containers and 57 containers for coconut and pineapple.
It can be seen that the volume of products in the Southeast Asian market has grown very strong. With these volumes, it was also possible to fully develop the western goods sector, for example, navel oranges, kiwifruit and grapefruit (278 containers, 37 containers, 26 containers).
As the weather gradually becomes colder, demand for fruit will gradually increase. The large-scale ripening of autumn fruit will also promote the steady decline of fruit prices. It is expected that a large number of autumn fruits such as traditional apples, citrus oranges, and honey pomelos will be on the market in the later stages. The quarterly listing and the maturity of fruit in Western countries will give consumers more choice and the fruit market will become more diverse.
