More local South Australian fresh produce could be seen in Chinese supermarkets and in restaurantsÂ with theÂ Stateâ€™s wholesale fruit and vegetable market will enter into a Memorandum of Understanding toÂ increase exporting opportunities through the Chinese GuangZhou Jianghan Fruit and Vegetable Wholesale Market.
The GuangZhou Jianghan Fruit and Vegetable Wholesale Market is one of Chinaâ€™s largest wholesale fresh produce markets which supplies a diverse group of retail customers in China.
The Adelaide Produce Market, which consists of 100 wholesaling and growing-related businesses that supplies over $590 million of fresh produce each year hasÂ entered into a partnership indirectly with its Chinese counterpart. ThisÂ was witnessed by Prime Minister Tony Abbott and Minister for Agriculture Leon Bignell MP last week on 5th August 2015.
â€œThe signing of this memorandum of understanding signify the bond and strength of this relationship which had been formed as a result of the Premierâ€™s Trade Mission to Shandong Province, South Australiaâ€™s sister state in China in May 2015,â€ Adelaide Produce Market CEO Angelo Demasi said.
â€œThis MOU will pave the way for increased exporting opportunities for the South Australian horticulture industry and in particular, the Adelaide Produce Market community,â€ he said.
