US is a big purchaser of apple juice concentrate from China
Dec 29, 2018

The growth of U.S. imports from China has exploded over the past five years; apple juice concentrate is a perfect example. Recent statistics indicate that 78 percent of the concentrate we import comes from China. The reason: China grows one-half of the world’s crops. That was not always the case. Since China entered the World Trade Organization in 2001, much has changed. Global trading has expanded and China is expected to comply with WTO safety expectations under a Sanitary and Phytosanitary Measures Agreement. The Chinese export their juice concentrates worldwide and the U.S. is a big purchaser. Food and Water Watch stated that children eat many common foods that come from China, such as apple juice, candy, and canned fruit.
