Australian exports to China have reached new heights this year. Citrus exports have surpassed all previous exports and "Australia's peach and nectarine crop are looking to have a great season, not at all comparable to the disappointing 2016 crop".

A number of Chinese brands and trading companies were present, such as: Botou DongFang Fruit Co., LTD., Joy Wing Mau Group, Shanghai JueYue Fruit Co., LTD., Shenzhen XiYu HuaGuoShan Agricultural Products Development Co., Ltd.

During the Friday and Saturday the China Fresh Conference was staged, with speakers from the Chinese and global fresh produce industry. Topics included updates on China's fresh produce import market, introduction of France's and New Zealand's fruit and veg export product, updates in planting and processing technology and a special focus on Chinese and global brands and brand building. All sessions were well attended throughout the 2 days.
