Producing fresh, high quality fruit from plantations within China's premier citrus region
At the end of 2015, we controlled 19 plantations spanning over 8,500 hectares, all within the China's premier citrus growing region, the Ganzhou City district within the Jiangxi Province. The region is ideal for citrus fruits, enjoying significant amounts of sunshine, good levels of rainfall (about 1500mm per annum) and a long, frost-free growing season.
Our tangerine and orange orchards are located primarily at the source of Dong River–Xunwu.
Our sweet pomelo planting base is located at Nankang;
Our camellia products planting bases are located at several counties including Xingguo County.
Demand for citrus and camellia fruits continues to increase in the PRC, accounting for ~13% of total fruit production in 2014, and remains among the fastest growing fruit segments. We expect the segment to continue to grow at a CAGR of ~10.2% by value, and 4.9% by volume, through to 2020, supported by favourable PRC government initiatives.
