Imported mangoes need to be sold as soon as possible
To expand the market scale of Pakistani mango in China, the person in charge said that imported mangoes need to be sold as soon as possible, and the price is relatively high, so they are more suitable for sale in large warehouses supermarkets such as Sam’s Club.
Household purchases can effectively increase the sales of mangoes. For retail, Fresh Hema Supermarket also matches the price of Pakistani mangoes.
Regarding the import demand of the Chinese cherry market, the person in charge of the booth stated that China consumes 90% of Chilean cherries. Although the scale of Chilean cherries is growing every year, it is still difficult to meet the needs of Chinese consumers, because the consumer group of Chinese cherries is expanding.
“Eating cherries has even become the new fashion for third-and fourth-tier cities to celebrate the Spring Festival.” As China actively expands imports, Uzbekistan’s cherries have been exported to China for the first time in 2020. It is expected that Pakistani cherries can also be exported to China as soon as possible.
