Consumers see a lot of different dried fruits and nuts during their daily shop, such as Chinese chestnuts, walnuts, almonds, and melon seeds. The Chinese nuts and seeds market has mainly depended on imports in recent years, in particular from Chile, Thailand, and Vietnam.
"Market supply of dried fruits and nuts is extremely stable in comparison with fresh fruit and vegetables. The main reasons for this situation are as follows: first, supply lasts all year. The division of production seasons is not obvious. Second, product quality is easier to maintain for longer periods. Third, the price of dried fruits and nuts is less sensitive to overall market fluctuations." This is according to Mr. Zhou Fang, a trader of dried fruits and nuts.
"Our dried fruit and nuts are externally processed. We mainly sell our products in wholesale markets and supermarkets in first and second tier cities throughout China. We are currently reconsidering distribution and other cost factors. We have not yet opened the export market. In the future, when we have matured in the domestic market, we'll also consider exporting our products."
