#TheGreatBeautyofGuangdong On December 22, the Winter Solstice, the first Chilean cherry clipper ship "MAERSK LABERINTO" arrived at Nansha Port of Guangzhou. After some related procedures, 9,000 tons of high-quality Chilean cherries were unloaded and shipped from Nansha Port to Jiangnan Fruit Wholesale Market in Guangzhou and quickly distributed to the supermarkets in the Greater Bay Area. This is the largest single batch of domestic shipping cherries arrived at the port so far.
According to the Chilean Fruit Exporters Association, Chile's overall cherry season production is expected to reach nearly 450,000 tons this year, up 25% from the same period last year.
Before the Spring Festival in 2023, the Nansha Port area will pick up and unload 11 Chilean cherry clippers. The cherry import volume this season is expected to exceed 7,000 units, an increase of nearly 300% compared to last year. Nansha Port will become the largest cherry-importing port in China.
