Chongqing- The COVID-19 epidemic situation in Southwest China’s Chongqing remains severe and complicated, and food security remains a major concern for many people.

iChongqing reporter arrived at Chongqing’s largest vegetable market, the temporary point of Shuangfu Agricultural Trade Market in Jiangjin District. From the perspective of supply, vegetables are quite sufficient.

Statistics show that the central metropolitan area of Chongqing consumes about 3,700 tons of vegetables daily. About 1,300 tons of locally grown vegetables are provided to the central metropolitan area daily. Vegetable bases in Yunnan, Sichuan, and other places have a supply guarantee agreement with Chongqing, which can organize nearly 10,000 tons of vegetable varieties daily.

In addition, to increase the supply guarantee channel and provide the citizens with essential living materials, including vegetables, the Chongqing Municipal Market Supervision and Administration Bureau organized an administrative meeting for the city’s key e-commerce platforms and online supermarkets.

Over ten participating companies quickly respond by ensuring commodity supply, coordinating transportation capacity, optimizing distribution services, and strengthening platform management to ensure market supply and price stability.
