"Currently we import several seasonal fruits from Thailand, Vietnam, Australia, New Zealand, the US, Spain and other countries. We've also successfully opened up the Chinese orange market for Egyptian citrus. We chose Egypt because part of the Chinese orange crop contracted citrus greening disease, causing a rapid decline of the production volume. The Egyptian oranges are available for purchase in the same period, so they help to fill the gap in the Chinese market," says Mr. Sam Xie of Goldanda Shenzhen.
"Based on estimates, we will import Egyptian navel oranges before the Chinese New Year (in early February). After the New Year, we will also start importing Spanish oranges. Because the Egyptian orange season is also dealing with a small degree of reduced production this season, prices of imported oranges have slightly gone up this year compared to the year before."Import-export trade transition
"We are a professional agricultural trading company that was founded in 1999. Before 2012, we exported large quantities of fruit to Canada, the Middle East and the Southeast Asian countries. Afterwards, we experienced fluctuations on the foreign exchange market and were faced with the increasing competition of the fruit exporting market. We promptly reoriented on the market and focused our energy on the development of the import market. The fruit we import reaches the mainland through the harbours of Shanghai and Hong Kong."
"The company owns over 200 hectares of navel orange orchards in Jiangxi and also owns a modern packaging factory. At the orchard, we use organic fertilisers in combination with homemade fertiliser. The oranges we cultivate ourselves and the oranges we import are all mainly sold on the wholesale markets and well-known supermarkets of Canton, Beijing, Shanghai and other cities. The amount of online sales is also marked by a staggering increase."
