China market set for strong return
China’s fresh produce trade is riding high on the back of an exceptionally strong Chinese New Year sales campaign, and the industry is gearing up to return in force at Asia Fruit Logistica 2023.

In 2022, China imported 7.33m tonnes of fruit worth US$14.6bn, representing year-on-year increases of 4 per cent and 8 per cent respectively, according to recently released government data. The top-performing fruit import categories by value were durians, cherries, bananas, mangoes and coconuts.

China’s fruit exports totalled 3.26m tonnes in 2022 with a value US$4.6bn. Apples, table grapes, citrus, pears and grapefruit were the dominant products, with the majority of exports going to markets in South-East Asia such as Vietnam, Thailand, Indonesia and the Philippines. 

Leading Chinese distributor Goodfarmer, a regular exhibitor at Asia Fruit Logistica since its debut in 2007, sees the event as an essential international platform.

“We’ve gained great international exposure at Asia Fruit Logistica over the years. It has given us the opportunity to communicate and cooperate with overseas fruit growers and retailers and also made us realise the value of being based in China, bringing the world’s finest fruits to Chinese consumers,” said Selina Xu, Goodfarmer’s China brand director.

“At Asia Fruit Logistica 2023, we’ll continue to expand Goodfarmer’s brand awareness and influence as an industry leader. At the same time, we’ll seek to find more excellent partners around the world and build a global fruit value chain together.”

Hong Kong lifts travel restrictions

Hong Kong has also reopened its border with mainland China after three long years, and cross-border travel between Hong Kong, China and Macau has fully resumed. Inbound travellers to Hong Kong can now freely enter restaurants, attractions, exhibition venues and explore the city during their stay. For more information and travel updates, visit

The lifting of restrictions paves the way for exhibitors and trade visitors from all over the world to return in large numbers to Asia Fruit Logistica 2023, and they’re eagerly anticipating the opportunity to reconnect with the global fresh produce business.
