On August 2-4, ATO Guangzhou attended the International Tree Nut Conference in Guangzhou. The conference, organized by the Chinese Chamber of Commerce for Foodstuffs and Native Produce, included over 400 tree nut processors, importers and distributors from domestic and overseas locations. At the event, a number of U.S. trade associations set up booths to introduce and promote U.S. nuts. Additionally, multiple U.S. trade associations (such as the Almond Board of California and the National Pecan Growers Council) and U.S. tree nut companies presented at the conference and commented on key trends in the industry. At the conference it was reported that in 2016, Chinese imports (from all sources) of pistachios, almonds, hazelnuts and Brazil nuts increased by 62%, 17%, 218%, and 75% respectively.
