China's Food Exports Rise 8.9% In March

CHINA'S food exports hit US$2.62 billion in March, an increase of 8.9 percent from a year earlier, presenting the first year-on-year growth in the last five months, the General Administration of Customs said yesterday.

Fruit exports led the growth, jumping 23.5 percent in March. Seafood exports rose 16.2 percent year on year.

The value of food exports totaled US$7.17 billion in the first three months, down 5.5 percent year on year.

The country's food exports had been falling since October last year, affected by the global financial crisis and the baby milk powder scandal that left six infants dead and almost 300,000 ill, said the Customs.

The situation improved as government and industry efforts to strengthen food safety supervision and expand exports began to pay off, according to the Customs.
