“From March 20, we started small-scale opening and independent picking. Depending on old customers, we have sold more than 10,000 jin.” Gou Xianshu, head of Tangjiao Citrus Professional Cooperative, said that they were exploring the cooperation mode with local e-commerce, reserving and placing orders online, and delivering fresh fruits within the city through express companies, so as to ensure that fresh fruits can reach the citizens directly from the field.
