As the Spring Festival holiday draws closer, many retailers are seeing more foot traffic around their cherry promotion areas.

Generally, major nationwide retail channels saw cherry sales rise over the past week.


Of note recently to members of the fruit industry and traders of imported fruit in China was an official notice from the China Fruit Marketing Association calling for rational, science-backed epidemic prevention measures and media reporting, as well as for the industry to come together to stimulate sales of cherries and ensure a steady supply in coming weeks.
