On the morning of January 31st, the 100 tons of garlics started to be transported in ten trucks to Wuhan in Central China's Hubei province from Jinxiang County, Jining, east China's Shandong province.
The garlic is predicted to be supplied to markets in Wuhan on the evening of Jan 31st.
Jinxiang, a world center for garlic planting, storage, production, processing and trade, enjoys the fame of "east or west, Jinxiang garlic is the best".
The Jinxiang Garlic Association mobilized specialized garlic storage and processing enterprises and farmers to collect garlics to supply the market in Wuhan. Enterprises across the county took active measures to collect and donate garlics. “More than 300 tons of high-quality garlics were donated in less than one day”, said Wang Xinjian, president of the association.
