To raise the people's quality of life, and because of promotion of knowledge on healthy food, the Chinese consumer more and more thinks about eating organic vegetables," says Mr. Qiu Xianxiong from Hubei Xing Fu Agricultural Development Co., Ltd.

"This year's production season of organic cucumbers started in May. It will end in November. The price is approximately twice as high as for normal cucumbers. At the moment, the market price for organic cucumbers is the same as last year. The total sales volume has grown. This is mostly because organic cucumbers have gotten more popular over the years. Compared to normal cucumbers, organic cucumbers not only have a reasonable size, are straight, have a glow, and have a developed rhizome, but the taste is also fresh and crisp. Moreover, organic cucumbers have a longer shelf life than products that are grown with chemicals."
Organic cucumbers in production
"In Ezhou in Hubei we have our own greenhouses for organic cucumbers. We held around 6 mu for testing. Later we built a production site of 55 mu. In the future, we want to grow to 300-500 mu. Our products include Beijing and Taiwan cucumbers. At the moment, we sell our organic cucumbers under the registered brand "Xing Fu". They are sold directly through companies, both online and offline, to Wuhan and surrounding cities. We have now set up sales through WeChat and through regional e-commerce platforms as well. In the future, we hope that we will have the opportunity to work together with more e-commerce platforms."
Organic cucumbers with a fresh taste
"Our products have been improved by the Taiwan Farmers Cooperation. We now have two experts from a famous agricultural organization from Taiwan who are responsible for improving the soil and the filters. Moreover, we strictly follow the processes for organic production. Organic ecology is the basis for our production. It makes natural products with a great taste. In the future, we hope that we can expand our market north to Xi'an, and south to Shanghai and Guangzhou. When the time is ripe, we also want to export our products to other countries."
