"China: Walmart unites suppliers in "Fresh Food Alliance"

On April 16th, Walmart established the "Fresh Food Alliance" with seven other suppliers of fresh products, including Jingdong Home, Tyson, Yili, Dole, Sunner, Blue Snow Food, Goodfarmer and Jinlongyu. Walmart said that more suppliers will join the alliance in the future. At the current stage, the "Fresh Food Alliance" is mainly working with the Jingdong Home Platform. One of our main goals is the full synchronization of the Walmart Jingdong Home e-commerce platform and the work of the offline stores.

Walmart employees say that there are very few companies who can deliver fresh food across the country. The process is too demanding and it's difficult to keep the products cool during the transportation. Walmart's work with "Fresh Food Alliance" has just begun, but in the future, the cooperation will include production, distribution and retail as well. The whole supply process will be possible using Walmart's existing fresh food distribution centers and their distribution, transportation and replenishment systems. This will allow Walmart to reach a full synchronization between online and offline stores.
