Frozen fruit dealThis article was originally published in Foodnews
KUALA LUMPUR-based Asia Shangtex has signed a CNY10 million contract with Shanghai Lingyuanjiayu Trading Co, to supply frozen durian products to China. Emma Slawinski writes: The one-year contract paves the way for the supply of a wide variety of durian products in large quantities. "China imports fresh durian mainly from Thailand as Malaysian durians were unable to enter their market due to some technical issues at the government-to-government level," Asia Shangtex's senior manager, Yap Jian Shoong, told reporters at the signing ceremony on 22 February. Yap said the signing was a significant milestone for producers of tropical fruits in Malaysia, opening a door for them to enter the Chinese market.
