Isolation saved lives and now a new sun is about to rise over China. Looking back on the past few months, not only did the Chinese fruit and vegetable industry experience a great trial, but they never interrupted the supply of fresh fruit and vegetables. Furthermore, major production areas donated large volumes of fruit and vegetables to the front lines of the fight against COVID-19. They saved a great many lives.
The most recent data from the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization, China has surpassed India and the USA as the largest producer of fruit and vegetables in the world. The annual production volume reached 708 million tons in 2016, which was an increase of 3% in comparison with 2015. China is responsible for 39% of the global production volume of fruit and vegetables. China produced 448 million tons of vegetables.

Global warming has led to a higher frequency of extreme weather conditions. Furthermore, there is a shortage of manpower in the fruit and vegetable industry and there is a shortage of resources as well. The agricultural industry therefore urgently needs to break away from this old-fashioned model of food production that relies on weather conditions. The most effective way towards an agricultural industry with improved efficiency is through agricultural installations. Horti China was first organized in 2017. The exhibition offers a platform for technological solutions to problems in the global agricultural industry. Suppliers of manufactured products and technologies are able to develop close connections with farmers, traders, and investors in the agricultural industry.
Creating international links, flourishing together
Horti China is a specialized B2B exhibition focused on agricultural plantation technology. The exhibition has an extremely high level of international participation. Every year the exhibition hosts such leaders as the Dutch ambassador to China or the French delegation from Angers. The exhibition also welcomes international farming companies and cultivators. The participants are able to enjoy the exhibition and exchange information on innovative technology for the agricultural industry.
"The invention of such technologies as the internet of things has led to innovations in a great number of industries, including agriculture, which is one of the largest industries in the world. Innovative technology inspired the production of plantation drones, helps to verify the origin of agricultural products, and improved agricultural management systems. Technology helped the traditional farming industry to go digital and develop intelligent solutions. The relevant new technologies and new ways of thinking are all available at Horti China."
