It will be critical, Riggan said, for Chinese receivers to be instructed in how to handle, store and display U.S. pears to ensure quality. If shrink levels are high, they won’t want to buy more, he said.

Point-of-sale materials from the bureau and planned samplings should help the process, Riggan said.
