The annual volume of fruit imported to Beijing Xinfadi Market grows every year as the average income of consumers continues to rise. The Xinfadi Market has already established its own plantations in more than 8 countries, including the Philippines, Vietnam, and Thailand, to guarantee low prices and high quality for fruit imported to Beijing.
