Not long ago, the united Arab emirates dubai WenChao green farm officially became the united Arab emirates airlines in-flight meals contributing suppliers, these fruits and vegetables are kind of out of the desert, not only on the local overseas Chinese table, but also "beauty day".
The vegetable farm, located at the centre of dubai about 50 kilometers southwest of naz desert, towel gourd grow inside, amaranth, leek, rape and other common on the Chinese dinner table vegetables. Host is dubai WenChao group director ChangSunJian provinces.
"Eat WenChao food has the flavor of the mother Fried, into our farm as if into the dad kind of vegetable." He introduced the "green", said hope local overseas Chinese from his dish to eat out the flavor of hometown.
Mr 2006 tsunami province early to dubai, starting with a small supermarket, after 10 years of time, small supermarket development step by step for supermarket, online mall, tea, green farm, food import and export trade, which integrates WenChao group.
Dubai's food is given priority to with barbecue Fried, vegetables are limited, eating habits are the biggest problem facing after many Chinese to dubai. To dubai's Chinese is becoming more and more demand for fruits and vegetables is becoming more and more big. Side basic dependence on imported fruits and vegetables, however, or expensive, or fresh enough, and a lot of food preservative for transportation storage and fresh-keeping agent, is not conducive to human health. How to make Chinese people eat the fresh health, home town of vegetables, he often thinking of problem is this.
In 2012, Mr Tsunami province, spent more than ten million yuan building vegetable farms in the desert, at that time, many people think that this is a fable. Because, many visitor to the united Arab emirates dubai have heard the introduction: whether a local family really "local tyrants", depending on its degree of green house. Because in the years of drought, hot sand in all the land, the united Arab emirates, feed a tree maintenance costs as much as $3000 a year.
Take WenChao green farm, for the place where the original is also a long desert sand. He in an interview with the media about the tough decisions, said: "when I was a person standing here, in addition to a desert before, nothing. Dubai is not a few rain all the year round, half the temperature in the 40 to 50 degrees Celsius, friends doubt I completely understand. But fresh authentic Chinese flavor is our Chinese homesickness, the road difficult to walk again, I decided to do it, will go all out."
In addition to the determination and commitment, build farms need to overcome many difficulties in the desert.
First of all, growing vegetables in the desert, one of the biggest difficulties is water. Fortunately, Mr Tsunami province dubai with boldness and courage impressed by the local government, relevant departments of the special permit allows he played six mouth depth of more than 100 meters deep, exploitation of groundwater for irrigation.
"Once mined groundwater, they use water dropper technology, Israel purify all adopt the Italian water purification equipment." Farm a xu employee said in an interview, because almost no industrial dubai, groundwater quality is very good, staff of irrigation water and vegetables, use of groundwater. Because of green environmental protection, and the growth time, their farms grow vegetables, taste is better than the local of some vegetables, are popular, often in short supply.
Second, the more the spirit of the need to bear hardships and stand hard work and perseverance of perseverance. From laying pipelines or protect themselves from blowing sand retaining water, to the erection of the transformer, electric, water-cooled air conditioning greenhouses, its tsunami province in the construction of the early year almost every a hands-on, the sun heat drive nearly hundred kilometers every day, running back and forth between urban farm and dubai.
Complete hardware facilities, followed by planting technology. Please come from my hometown to do this, he experienced farmers, professor level foreign employees, gradually barren sand into green farmland.
Farms grasps "the ecological and environmental protection, fine planting, and sustainable development" business philosophy, adhere to the use of hundreds of kilometers away from the farms of cow dung and camel dung mixed organic fertilizer, even the weeding is employees squat down bit by bit in the vegetable cleaning with a knife. Vegetable prices are not so carefully nurtured by the local tyrants, and domestic prices were little changed.
Nowadays, WenChao green farm has begun to take shape, first and second period with a total area of about 130 mu, has 20 greenhouses, more than 100 square meters of fresh water temperature control, planting fruits and vegetables more than 30, with Chinese characteristics production tons a day, in addition to twice a day to supply their own supermarket retail, also to Chinese companies in the united Arab emirates (uae) the dining room.
Have always is famous for its strict procurement standards from certification, the united Arab emirates airlines recently officially ranked tsunami province green farm emirates in-flight meals special vegetable vendor, farm under the green vegetables is really worthy of the name to "heaven".
When it comes to the goal of the future, he says, will continue to be scientific and rational management of farms, further improve farming, cleaning processing, sales, distribution and other one-stop process, and timely to scale up, "hope dubai more than 80% of the Chinese people every day can eat to we offer fresh organic vegetables."
As the Chinese consul general in dubai Li Lingbing earlier this year, laments a visit to the farm, the dubai government to build prosperous city in the desert is to make the miracle of attention, while the Chinese entrepreneurs overcome various difficulties, create the scale of the modern farms in the desert, is also an admirable "green miracle". Mr Tsunami province is large in the hard work a microcosm of Chinese businessman, along with the in-depth development of china-arab build "area", exchanges and cooperation in various fields between the two countries to strengthen unceasingly, believe this will be more and more green business miracle.
