Although fresh blueberries from the USA are restricted for entry to China — USHBC conducts activities to educate, engage and encourage blueberry consumption overall. This month, we are participating with the USDA-FAS office in Beijing on educational seminars on produce handling in Quindao (Shandong Province) and Xi’an (Shaanxi) Province.
When you visit a grocery store of fruit market in China, you will notice wide differences in blueberry display and handling. Typically, you will find a vast fresh product area and a small refrigerated area. blueberries are often stacked from the floor in room temperature.
Seminars will show practical information on how to protect your blueberry investment and also to get the freshest product for positive consumer experience.
