"Our cherry tomatoes are produced in Lingshui, Hainan. The supply period is November to April in the subsequent year. This year's production volume of cherry tomatoes is at the same level as last year. However, as a result of many different reasons, the price is much lower than last year." This is according to Qiu Baodong of Hainan Jing Peng Group.

"We cooperate with farmers and purchase from them. The company provides each farmer with one ton of organic fertilizer per 0.07 hectare as well as a loan of 500-1000 yuan [73-147 USD] for the purchase of seedlings. We set a guaranteed price based on market conditions. Our cooperation has already grown to include around 70 hectares of cherry tomato plantation. We expect this number to exceed 130 hectares in 2019."

"We sell our cherry tomatoes under our own registered brand 'Jing Peng' through traditional sales channels. Our cherry tomatoes are sold in large-scale fruit chain stores, innovative retail supermarkets, and traditional supermarkets. Examples include Hema Fresh and Shandong Jia Jia Yue supermarkets. As for our packaging, we do not use bubble-wrap like other markets do. At Jing Peng we have learned from the experience of cherry tomato companies abroad and decided to adopt paper packaging that is more friendly to the environment. We also provide small, breathing, food-grade boxes of cherry tomatoes for Hema Fresh."
Lingshui cherry tomatoes
"Lingshui cherry tomatoes received the China Protected Geographical Indication. We have received widespread approval from different markets after years of promotion and development. Our cherry tomatoes are mainly eaten as fresh snacks. In addition to cherry tomato plantations we also own 400 hectares of Hami melon plantations, 133 hectares of lychee plantations, and 200 hectares of mango plantations."

"Our main advantages in the plantation and sales of cherry tomatoes are as follows: first, we cooperate with farmers to introduce standard management, which results in stable product quality. Second, the company owns a modern processing factory that covers more than 1 hectare. It has two fruit selection belts that were imported from New Zealand where the fruit is washed, disinfected, and sterilized, selected according to detailed requirements, and automatically weighed. This process results in a stable level of uniform product quality, color, and size. Third, we use paper packaging to cut down on environmentally unfriendly bubble-wrap in the market. Furthermore, we maintain constant temperature throughout the transport process to guarantee fresh products upon delivery."
