China trade to treble, predicts Zespri

Within the next 10 years, New Zealand’s Fruits major Zespri expects exports to China to treble.

Approximately 205 million fruit units at present are exported to China and the country accounts for 6% of Zespri sales.

Carol Ward, director of corporate and grower services said, “Based on current growth rates, it is realistic to anticipate that within a 10-year timeframe, China and Hong Kong could form up to 20% of our total business.”
