Food Chapter -PRUNE DROP


Many net red foods now like to cross -border, and combine two things that are not in the world, and become new products. I personally thought that the creamy plum candy was the early years in the food industry, and the red became red for half a century.

History of Shanghai Candy and Cute Industry

China used to be an important sugar -producing country in the world. Before the middle of the nineteenth century, sugar was the largest export product of the Qing court beyond tea and silk. However, before the opening of the port in Shanghai, the Shibura was close to the seaside, the sails were linked, and the transportation was convenient. It was the main port of sucrose trade in the southeast coast of China. Subsequently, the Opium War broke out, and the advantages of China’s sucrose production also weakened with the decline of the national situation of the Qing Dynasty. China has changed from sucrose exporter to importing countries. After the Five -ports, Shanghai’s port was opened. Due to its geographical advantage, the China Sugar Industry Distribution Center was transferred from Chapu to Shanghai. Shanghai has become a collection center for ocean sugar and transferred to the mainland of China. [1]
