The first batch of 262.6 tons of Chinese cabbage produced in Jilin Province, located in the central part of northeastern China, was sold to South Korea on Oct. 11, and the province will continue to sell about 1,240 tons of Chinese cabbage to South Korea in the future.

Zhao Xiaowei, manager of the Department of the Personnel Administration under the Jilin Gaorong Agriculture Company said that currently the company has signed a 1,500-ton Chinese cabbage supply contract with South Korean clients, and the company is now processing their stocks in order to ensure a timely and ample supply of goods to South Korea.

Reporters saw a busy scene at the company's processing workshop. Dozens of workers worked extra hours post-processing cabbages to meet standards of South Korean clients.

According to sources, each cabbage imported from China was sold at the price between 2,000 won to 3,000 won (about 12 yuan to 18 yuan), which is much lower than the more than 10,000 won charged for South Korean cabbage currently.
