The Jiaxing International Fruit Conference 2020, a three day event, kicked off on November 3. Global produce giants Zespri and Dole, China's leading fruit company Jin Wing Mao Group, large e-commerce platform Hema Fresh and more than 200 industry leaders from China and abroad gathered in Jiaxing to participate in this event.

Jiaxing Fruit Market is the largest fruit distribution center in the Yangtze River Delta area, leading the fruit trading in China. In 2018, the Haiguangxing Premium Fruit Trading Center, which mainly focuses on imported fruits and premium fruits, opened its doors to the public, and has become the largest distribution center for Southeast Asian fruit in China.
In 2019, by successfully organizing the first edition of the Jiaxing International Fruit Conference and releasing the Jiaxing Fruit Index, Jiaxing further expanded the influence of the Jiaxing Fruit Market nationally and internationally, broadened distribution and trading channels, and facilitated the communication with global fruit traders, driving the development of global fruit trade. Last year, the transaction value of the Jiaxing Fruit Market was nearly 40 billion yuan.
In the first three quarters of this year, the transaction value of the Jiaxing Fruit Market reached 32.29 billion yuan, a year-on-year increase of 7.5%. The yearly transaction value this year is expected to reach 42 billion yuan. The market plans to reach a transaction volume of 50 billion yuan by 2021 and 100 billion yuan by 2025, achieving its goals of becoming China’s first fruit wholesale market with the trading value of 100 billion yuan and a modern world fruit trading center.
