As lush banana plantations in Northeast Cambodia’s Kratie province enter harvest season, tractors, carrying bunches of just-picked bananas to an adjacent packaging factory, have been rumbling across the orchards these days.
Dozens of skilled Cambodian workers have been working together to clean, trim, weigh, inspect, and package these bananas. They would be sent to cold storage as soon as possible and then delivered to Chinese consumers through the cold-chain logistics system.
In May 2019, Cambodian bananas were directly exported to China for the first time. This move not only enriches the fruit basket of Chinese consumers, but also brings “spring” to the Cambodian banana industry.
