The first container of Sweeki branded kiwis arrived from Chile in the port of Shenzhen, South-West China. The container, directed to the Chinese clients, is the first of the shipment plan of Origine Group for the Asian markets, that will continue for several weeks.
“Sweeki kiwis – says Origine Group general manager, Alessandro Zampagna – will reach the markets of different Asian countries, where they will be sold until October, both loose and in clamshells, in small shops and supermarkets”.
Sweeki is the top quality kiwi of the consortium Origine Group, that was set up by 10 leading fresh fruit and vegetable companies in Italy and Chile.
Sweeki kiwi follows tight quality standards, regarding sweetness, form and firmness. These standards are valid for both Italian and Chile origins, in order to assure to the clients premium kiwis all the year round.
