New products from Zhuji, a county-level city under the administration of Shaoxing, East China's Zhejiang province, have become popular in international markets after being unveiled recently.
The Chinese torreya marble chocolate produced by Zhejiang Champion Torreya Grandis Co Ltd in partnership with Zhejiang Lingqiao Food Co Ltd is among the popular foods, while a new type of panty hose developed by local firms has also proved a hit.
The Chinese torreya marble chocolate, a combination of Torreya Grandis and chocolate, turned out to be surprisingly popular in western markets. Two tons of the new chocolate were sold out within just one month, and the food has now been exported to many countries.
The panty hose have also become a hit in European markets, as local women snap them up to keep warm while showing off their figure.
According to Zhang Guangcui, manager of Zhejiang Yingqier Knitting Co Ltd, a manufacturer of the panty hose, the number of panty hose orders from Europe in October of 2022 rose 40 percent year-on-year.
From January to November, 2022, Zhuji's exports and imports totaled 57.75 billion yuan ($8.41 billion), a year-on-year increase of 20.15 percent.
