China Facts: China's Domestic Fruit Industry and What it Means for Imports

Chinese production is growing steadily, but too much of the overall supply is low grade specimens of a narrow selection of species and varieties. For example, Fuji apples, Asian pears, red globe grapes, bananas, and melons. However, Chinese consumers are more and more craving "fruit that is premium-quality, differentiated, safe, organic, branded and/or high value," which has helped boost imports. Fruit consumption in China is less than half the world average, and 30% of developed countries, yet averaged over the past three years, fresh fruit imports into China are actually growing at a slower rate than China's GDP.
