However, compared to imported fruit, the differences in quality are still rather big. This is mainly because farmers and packing factories abroad have adopted mechanized management, and because they put more focus on food safety and sustainable development strategies," according to Coco Zhu of Jaguar."Jaguar's business in China consists of 90% import and 10% export. We mainly ship through the port of Shanghai. Compared to last year, we have now put even more energy into quality control. In addition, Jaguar has recently established several well-known Egyptian orange brands."
