Kiwi's from France in Foodland

Recommended Posts

How can there be kiwi's from France in the Foodland now? Are they really from France or is this a misunderstanding in some way?

Or maybe: 

 

Under optimum storage conditions at a temperature of -0.5ºC and 0ºC and a relative humidity of 90 to 95%, kiwis can be stored for between 3 and 5 months. Controlled atmosphere storage extends the period for kiwis by 3-4 months

Could come from a French overseas department... Reunion Island, Guadeloupe, etc.

Can they call it produce from France if it comes from those colonies?

Yes maybe that's what they did...or they were grown in greenhouses in France.

I just checked... these overseas departments use on labels Fabriqué en France (Made in France)

I see, but shouldn't that be 'fabrique en republique Francais'? This is misleading because they are not from France in case they came from the overseas departments.

Are you not aware of cold storage? Maybe you you should look up the shelf life of colt storage fruits in general.

 

Welcome to a multinational trade system.

No i don't know much about that...i do know that van Amerongen is from Holland though.

 Those kiwi's looked very good, smooth without wrinkles and fat.

Really? For me that's cheating...but Levi's is out of fashion anyway compared to the 501 time...

Kiwi fruit are grown in France.  To quote from once source:

 

"The Adour is possibly the best-known region for French kiwis, where ¼ of French kiwi production takes place thanks to over 350 growers. Kiwis are one of the only exotic fruit that can be grown on home soil in this region, which boasts ideal growing conditions thanks to granite soil, a good amount of humidity and a temperate climate."

 

"Kiwis grown in France are generally harvested in October or November and then kept in cold rooms, to be sold through the spring months."
