Green food - Agribusiness in China
Agribusiness or the business involving agricultural production was a common practice since the year 1957. Agricultural production, in this case, involves activities and
produce leading from crop production. Animal breeding, agrichemicals, processing, seed supply, and distribution. Throughout generations, the business of agricultural supply has thrived in most parts of the world especially, China. China as popularly known, is a business country leading from production, manufacturing, and distribution of various kinds of products. The Greed food project is also not left out in China’s market margin. This is because of China’s large population as well as its cultural background of preserving and maintaining a healthy nation. Green food consists of plant production produces such as cabbages, spinach, broccoli, peas among others. The vitality placed in consumption of green foods has caused a buzz for the Chinese community to embrace the Green food agribusiness in China. This also brought about the surfacing of green food industries and expos such as the oncoming “International Organic & Green Food Industry Expo Beijing 2019.”

The Green Food and Organic Project in China
This Chinese development program dates back to the year 1990. The government, food nutritionists and various standard commissioners felt the urge to emphasize on the importance of green food consumption for better living in China. Apart from human sustainment, Green Food was a huge consideration due to its environmental preservation effect such as maintaining pollution. Farmers were also much benefitted from this program consistency as it enabled them to earn income from production and supply of green produces. Besides, as food security has been a universal calamity for various unprepared nations, the China government felt the need to accentuate on Organic and Green Food production to prevent such instances.
The Green Food in China strategy has also helped to grow China’s economy through export activities, food production costs from labor requirement (that has generated opportunities) and environmental preservation. Moreover, the growth noted in trading of Greed Food and Organic products from China is increasing throughout the years to millions of hectares of land, with interested trading partners crowding in the Chinese Green Food markets.
