Where can you buy organic Food online in China

Where can you buy organic Food online in China

I receive many questions from visitors on the availability of organic food in China. The answer is complicated and it all boils down to what the ultimate philosophy of the visitor is on the food "organic" and their confidence level.

The milk 

New food scandals seem to be a weekly event - the most famous of them was contaminated with melamine and infant formula milk.

Global sales of farm chemicals

 hit $45 billion in 2009 and are expected to reach $52 billion in 2014, according to the Freedonia Group, an international business research firm.

China has become one of the biggest players - as both producer and consumer. In 2009, it made more than 2 million tons of farm chemicals, exporting 800,000 tons.

 Organic (synthetic) pesticides have been widely used worldwide since the 1940s and still take the major market share. Low-toxicity - and expensive - biological pesticides account for 1 percent of sales in China.

Epermarket : The key difference between organic and inorganic foods is that organic farming does not use synthetics to produce the finished product while inorganic farming does. Examples of synthetics are chemical fertilizers and pesticides. However, this does not mean that organic farming does not use pesticides or fertilizers at all. Organic farming uses natural fertilizers and pesticides instead.

Wal-Mart cheats Chinese Consumers 

But recently, Wal-Mart stores in Chongqing have been temporarily closed for the sale of meat ordinary pork as organic. The bottom line is, you can find plenty of food in China, which claims to be organic, but it can not ultimately be what you (or someone) would consider organic.

It seems incredible that farmers would shun the vegetables they send to the cities. But that is the case in Xundian where 100 hectares of greenhouses provide vegetables for Kunming, about 50 kilometers away. Farmers next door will not eat them due to health concerns. china daily

 "Chemicals and fertilizers are widely used. We have to use them to grow bigger and more beautiful vegetables to meet market demand," local farmer He Chengliang said. "But we only eat those grown in our courtyard without the use of chemicals. The variety may be limited but they are safe and healthy."

If the European and American markets are mature in the use of buffer, China's late, and few companies offer to sell such products on the market. So if a city wants to buy Chinese stamps, will begin his research on the Internet and find the few sites that offer to sell such products. Weishu chose to launch this niche and placing on the future development of this new market. To become an expert you must publish articles with high added value and offer multimedia quality.

It is on this principle that the site is dirty glamor-based to appeal to Chinese consumers.

Ecommerce in China is distinguished by its amazing growth !

Ecommerce in China is distinguished by its amazing growth !

The results, which are based on a survey of more than 11,000 online shoppers in 11 countries, emphasize the speed at which China has emerged as one of the hottest retail markets in the world. Online shopping, almost non-existent in China as recently as five years ago, has emerged as a major sales channel for retailers, with combined sales of about 1.3 trillion renminbi, or $ 211 billion, the last year, said Carrie Yu, China and the Asia-Pacific retail and consumer expert at PwC in Hong Kong.

"Everything happens very quickly here," said Ms. Yu "E-tailing has become a major concern for CEOs across all sectors of retail, whether electrical appliances, products luxury or even the grocery store. " The explosive growth of e-procurement in China has led to the emergence of the country as one of the busiest online shopping markets in the world, both in terms of overall sales volumes and depending on the frequency with which consumers shop online, Ms. Yu said. In China, 58 percent of respondents in the PwC report said they shopped online at least once a week, for example. This percentage was by far the highest of all the countries covered by the PwC survey.

The US ecommerce 

By comparison, only 42 percent of U.S. respondents, 41 percent of people in Britain, and 29 percent of Germans surveyed said they shopped online at least once a week. The percentage was lowest in France, where only 13 percent said they made purchases online one or more times per week.
Chinese consumers are also much more likely than their counterparts in other parts of the world to use smartphones or tablets rather than PCs to make purchases online. More than a third of Chinese online shoppers used such devices, about twice the global average, the PwC report found. The quest for lower prices has been a key driver of online shopping throughout the world in recent years, especially in the half-decade since the global financial crisis, when consumers in many parts of the world are become more likely to save money, Ms. Yu said.

According to McKinsey, China was the second largest e-tailing world market, after the United States in 2011, with sales totaling $ 120 billion - well over $ 107 billion in Japan, and more than double
