At the beginning of 2020, a sudden epidemic swept the world, and all walks of life were forced to press the pause button. At the same time, some industries have sprung up amidst changes, starting the process of accelerating change.
In 2020, under the circumstance of the epidemic, the fruit and vegetable industry has experienced an unprecedented test. From the forced suspension of the wholesale market at the beginning of the year to the explosion of fresh food e-commerce, fruit and vegetable practitioners quickly adjusted their channels amid the rapid changes and started a self-help mode.

Imported fruit was stagnant and tepid from the beginning, and finally won a round with cherries at the end of the year.
