BEIJING, Nov. 6, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Huai'an, a prefecture-level city in east China's Jiangsu Province has pursued a moderately prosperous society in all respects by promoting the development of its speciality food industry.
To pursue a well-off society with higher quality, Huai'an has taken advantages as an important commodity grain base and the hometown of Huaiyang cuisine, one of the four traditional Chinese cuisines, to develop specialty food industry, and the output value of its food industry has exceeded 100 billion yuan, said Cai Lixin, party chief of Huai'an.
The city has striven to promote the scale, standard, information, network and chain development of its agricultural products by building related bases, standards, quality system, e-commerce platforms and offline stores, said Ni Jianhua, director of the Huai'an Agriculture and Rural Affairs Bureau.
At the third China (Huai'an) International Food Expo held in Huai'an October 15-17, multiple quality Huai'an agricultural products were displayed, showing the distinctive "Huai'an flavor" to the world.
Over 336 renowned food enterprises participated in the exhibition, including 94 overseas enterprises from 24 countries and regions.
