New Zealand Apples and Pears CEO Allan Pollard:

'Uncertainty over Chinese wet market affects New Zealand fruit exporters'

One of the rumoured origins for the Corona-virus outbreak is a wet market in the Chinese city of Wuhan. Wet markets in the area re-opened last months, but the Chinese are now less trusting of these marketplaces.

The uncertainty that still exists around the origin of Covid-19 could certainly have an impact on New Zealand exporters. New Zealand Apples and Pears has relied heavily on wet markets as a way to shift its produce in China.
