Imported Kiwifruits Increase Rapidly in Tianjin Port

August 23, 2016

According to news from Tianjin CIQ, as of August 10, Tianjin port has quarantined a total of 16,524 tons of imported kiwifruits with a value of 51.19 Million USD. Currently, the volume and value have increased by 116.31% and 101.23%, respectively, compared with the same period last year and have even already exceeded the full-year data for 2015.

The imported kiwifruits are mainly from New Zealand, Italy, Chile, and Greece, with the volume of kiwifruits imported from New Zealand taking the first place and accounting for 91% of the total kiwifruit volume imported into Tianjin port.

The analysis shows that the rise of China’s consumption capacity, New Zealand’s focus on the promotion of the Chinese market, the improvement of cold logistic systems, and strong promotion of E-commerce vendors are the main reasons for the increase in imported kiwifruits.

Earlier data showed that in the first half year, the imported volume of kiwifruits has increased 73.6% compared with the same period last year, which represents a rapid growth for the kiwifruit industry.

Moreover, according to another report, a batch of organic kiwifruits was transported from New Zealand to Tianjin by sea and released by Tianjin Dongjiang CIQ after it passed quarantine. This became the first batch of organic New Zealand kiwifruits to arrive in Tianjin port.
