China: "Slight fall in volumes of carrots in Xiamen this year"

"The overall surface area devoted to carrot plantations in Shouguang this year slightly increased, but not by much. However, the overall production volume of carrots slightly decreased because of unfavorable weather conditions. The price of carrots was relatively high last year, and towards the end of the season many suppliers ran out of stock." This is according to Mark of Shandong Cologne Agricultural Science and Technology Co., Ltd.

Fresh carrots

"The carrot market experiences relatively large price fluctuations. This is on the one hand because the price of carrots, like other vegetables, is mainly dependent on the relation between supply and demand. On the other hand, carrots are also vulnerable to the supply of other vegetables and the related price fluctuations. The most recent production season of Xiamen carrots is already over, and the new production season of Shouguang carrots will begin in early May. We receive large pre-orders from visiting traders every day. It is obvious that the demand is strong."

"The price of carrots in the international market is highly dependent on the specific requirements of each individual market. This is what we have observed in recent years. Consumers in the Dubai market prefer small carrots, while consumers in the Thai market prefer medium carrots of high-quality, and in Vietnam the consumers prefer small and cheap carrots. Consumers in Korea prefer large carrots, while in Japan the consumers prefer large and cheap carrots."

"Our company combines production and trade. In addition to carrots, we also sell fresh garlic, fresh ginger, and apples. In the future, while we continue to steadily develop our current market share, we also hope to expand our activities in overseas markets."
