The Japanese government decided to discharge Fukushima nuclear wastewater this Thursday (24th). A fruit seller in Hong Kong's Yau Ma Tei fruit pen said today (22 December) that he is not worried about the impact on the sales of imported fruits from Japan, and believes that the public should look at the problem rationally: "Because I don't want to use (Fukushima) sea water to shower flowers and grow fruits." However, some fruit clerks also said that the supply of fruits from Fukuoka has decreased, "and the citizens are shocked that there are more in different prefectures."
Some members of the public said that after discharging nuclear wastewater, they would "look clearly first", and only consider purchasing if the fruit test report proved that it was safe.


The SAR government will initiate import controls after dumping nuclear wastewater in Japan, restricting aquatic products in many prefectures and cities in Japan, and although other foods are not restricted, the public is beginning to be cautious about imported food from Japan. The reporter inspected the Yau Ma Tei fruit bar this morning, and many merchants sold fruits that were advertised as "delivered directly from Japan".

The clerk expects that customers will not immediately cut off eating Japanese fruits

Ms. Chan, a fruit stall employee, said that Hong Kong people admire Japanese fruits and have better quality, but "some of them actually eat less", so she estimated that "it will be cut off immediately for a while, that is, it will eat less, or it will be 'made', they will eat." She noticed that some citizens bought less Japanese fruits, and the stalls were sold from many prefectures and cities in Japan, such as Nagano, Aomori, Yamanashi, Okayama and Fukuoka, among which the supply of Fukuoka had decreased.

Mr. Siu, the head of fruit retail and importer at Yau Ma Tei Fruit Stall, said that he recently noticed that some customers asked about the origin of fruits because of the discharge of nuclear wastewater in Japan: "Many people talk about it, and people keep talking." He pointed out that some fruits have a specific origin, for example, some fruits and melons are only produced in Hokkaido. He also said that peaches produced in Japan taste the best, the quality is guaranteed, and it is reassuring, and even released videos of fruits from planting to harvest on the Internet.

Mr. Siu added, "That is, the department seems to have some place, that is, if the department is big enough, it will fall to the whole big ah, and it is sweet enough and the whole thing will fall to the whole sweet."

Traders do not want to sell fruit from the impact Food ring requires inspection safety

He believes that we should look at the problem rationally, believing that the sales of fruits and agricultural products will not be greatly affected: "Because I don't want to use the (Fukushima) sea water to shower flowers and grow fruits." He pointed out that the stall business has been in business for many years, and since the nuclear accident in Fukushima, Japan, since the arrival of the goods, they have asked the Food and Environmental Protection Agency to test the radiation level of fruits: "I really have to do this every day, although it is a lot of trouble, but it is safe."

Xiao also pointed out that the dumping of nuclear wastewater into the sea is believed to have little impact on fruits and rice, "but if you are obviously tied to the sea, it is connected to fish food or a food chain..." He also pointed out that Japanese fruits are very mainstream in Hong Kong, and the supply of Japanese fruits from his stalls has not decreased.

He pointed out that there was a radiation problem even though it had little impact on sales, and explained that the number of Japanese fruits eaten by Hong Kong people was second only to that of the Japanese: "Because there are too many real departments, too many exports, some customers come back after traveling, saying: 'Hey, click on me, how about Japan?'" 」

Ms. Leung, a fruit stall employee, said that the general environment economy has affected sales: "It is an economic problem itself, but it is normal to be willing to buy food." She also pointed out that if Japan discharges nuclear wastewater, it is believed that it will further reduce the number of guests: "If you let go, you will definitely bury the guests, because it really has an impact on health."

Customers confess that they no longer buy Japanese fruits

Mr. Yan, who sold fruits at the Yau Ma Tei fruit bar today, said that Japan will not buy Japanese fruits after discharging nuclear wastewater, "The terrier will not buy it, because you are at high risk." He also said that if a friend sends him, "he will ask for (but) food".

Ms Lam, a member of the public, said no, she was too worried about the impact of fruit discharge from nuclear wastewater, but she was more worried about seafood. She said that if the nuclear wastewater is discharged, she will "look at it first", and if the inspection report indicates safety, she will consider buying: "They themselves Fukushima people are against ah, let's watch first." She believes that many fruits are of better Japanese quality, such as peaches, "really Japanese food", and pointed out that in the past, she would buy Japanese peaches, "but today (incoming goods) are all hemp and hemp, so I dare to buy them."
