Dragon fruit business helps in poverty fight, yields sweet success in South China
After four decades of working as a farmer, Liew Anh Luk, 70, came to China in 2002 from his home country Malaysia and continued his pursuit of a personal vision
to plant pitaya, or dragon fruit.
In the exhibition hall of Meichen Bio-Technology, vinegar, wine, juices and cosmetics, which are made of dragon fruit, attract visitors' attention. "Only through agro-processing can agriculture be developed in a sustainable way," Liew said.
The company's sales reached more than 30 million yuan ($4.56 million) last year, after over 10 varieties of products made of dragon fruit were promoted to the market.
"We have plans to promote more than 30 varieties of products to the market," said Liew.
The company's business was affected in the first half of this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but sales have grown moderately since August, Liew said.
