Garces Fruit is the largest cherry plantation and export company in Chile. Although Chile and China are on different sides of the world, the relationship between Chilean cherry companies and Chinese consumers is close. Garces Fruit recently donated 1,400 boxes of cherries to the Shanghai Public Health Clinic, and an additional 400 boxes to the Shanghai City Jinshan District Hygiene Committee. Each box contains 5 kg of Chilean cherries. The size of the cherries falls in categories J-3J, and the overall value is around 650 thousand yuan [93 thousand USD].
The local partner Shanghai IVCSUN Industrial Development Co., Ltd. helped to make local arrangements for this donation. And Well Fruit made sure the fruit arrived at the intended hospitals free of charge. Other partners who participated in this donation include the following: Fruit Day, Hema Fresh, Miss Fresh, City Supermarket, Yonghui Supermarket, Well Fruit, Costco, and other large wholesale fruit traders.
