Widely respected by sellers of organic produce worldwide, and especially in the United States, Feicheng Green Fruits & Vegetables Co., Ltd., has grown rapidly since it was founded in 2002. Headquartered in the city of Feicheng, in China’s Shandong Province, the company benefits from its location in a part of China whose terrain, soil, sunlight, and climate all are eminently suitable to agriculture. The company also benefits from the decision by the city to impose the strictest regulations on organic farming, ensuring that crops raised in Feicheng would meet the standards set for organic produce in the world’s great organic food centers, including Japan and other Asian countries, Europe, and the United States. Feicheng Green Fruits & Vegetables, Ltd., processes much of its produce, flash-freezing crops like carrots, edamame, and spinach, and dehydrating others, like sweet peppers and garlic. Some crops, like onions, can be processed either way.Despite the rapidly growing organic food market within China, Feicheng Green Fruits & Vegetables exports about 90% of its production of more than 30 different fruits and vegetables, primarily to Korea, Japan, Europe, and the United States. The region’s moderate climate, which rarely dips below 40 degrees Fahrenheit or exceeds 85 degrees, permits year-round crop cultivation, and the company scientifically manages its crops to maximize production. One of the crops that is especially prized is the Buddha Peach, especially in Asia; Shandong Province devotes more than 1.7 million acres to its peach orchards, making it the largest single peach-growing area in the world. The company supplies the organic markets of the world with a truly impressive array of produce, much of it well known, and some considered fairly exotic. For example, in addition to spinach, pod peas, asparagus, okra, broccoli, and pumpkins, the company also distributes taro, shiitake mushrooms, bamboo shoots, breadfruit, jicama, and komatsuna, also called Japanese mustard spinach, to its client markets worldwide.
