The Chinese company is partial to Italian olive varieties, such as Leccino and Coratina, which account for about 60 percent of its planting area.Once among the least-developed parts of China, Longnan was long plagued by its poor transport infrastructure and regarded as a synonym for cheap agricultural products.Now, with its forests of foreign olive trees, the region is gaining steam upmarket.”Apart from the olive varieties, processing lines for extra virgin olive oil were imported from Italy and Germany,” said Wang Wuxin, deputy general manager of the company, noting that Chinas first olive oil production line was imported from Italy and is now preserved in his company as a piece of history.The companys olive oil candidate, which came from the Italian Coratina variety, won the top Double Gold award at the Athena International Olive Oil Competition last year. It was the first time a Chinese enterprise won such an honor in Greece, the headstream of the worlds olive oil.The rich ore motivated has more gold miners. Longnan Garden City Olive Technology Development Co., Ltd. is also dedicated to Italian olive trees.Bai Xiaoyong, the companys chairman, in 2006 headed for Tuscany in Italy to learn the local skills of planting and processing olive trees. Their proficiency fueled Bais enthusiasm for promoting olive oil production back in China.After signing a cooperation contract with an Italian firm, Bais company welcomed foreign engineers to China to provide their Chinese co-workers with detailed technical guidance. Equipment imported from Italy was also installed at its production base in southwest Chinas Yunnan Province.In 2018, the companys olive oil stood out among 189 product samples from across the globe and won first prize, the Mario Solinas Quality Award, in an international competition organized by the International Olive Oil Council in Spain.Olive oil has now become a pillar industry in the region, with over 40,000 poverty-stricken households profiting in the booming sector. By the end of November 2020, Longnan had developed more than 40,000 hectares of olive trees, yielding 30,000 tonnes of olives and producing 4,200 tonnes of virgin olive oil worth 1.93 billion yuan (about 298 million U.S. dollars), according to the Longnan Olive Research Institute.var addthis_config = {“data_track_addressbar”:false};(For the latest China news, Please follow Peoples Daily on Twitter and Facebook)(Web editor: Wen Ying, Liang Jun)Add your comment/* * * CONFIGURATION VARIABLES: EDIT BEFORE PASTING INTO YOUR WEBPAGE * * */var;var disqus_shortname=;var disqus_identifier=;if ({disqus_shortname=enpeople;disqus_identifier = 9808543;}/* * * DONT EDIT BELOW THIS LINE * * */(function() {var dsq = document.createElement(script); dsq.type = text/javascript; dsq.async = true;dsq.src = // + disqus_shortname +;(document.getElementsByTagName(head)[0] || document.getElementsByTagName(body)[0]).appendChild(dsq);})();Please enable JavaScript to view the comments powered by Disqus.Related readingVillage in SW China explores roxburgh rose industry, lifts residents out of povertyElectricity consumption across Tibet doubles in past five yearsForeigners see Chinas victory against poverty on tripMountainous county in E China lifts residents out of poverty by improving infrastructure and developing characteristic industriesUN chief calls for interdependence, inclusion to break poverty-conflict cycleWinter fishing festival reels in tourists to Inner MongoliaWe RecommendFire brigade in Shanghai holds group wedding
