After Xinjiang cotton, Xinjiang tomatoes have been spotted by some people. According to the satellite news agency citing the Nihon Keizai Shimbun, Japan’s major tomato paste producer Kagome has stopped importing tomatoes from Xinjiang, China. According to the response of a representative of Kagome, the so-called “human rights issue” was a factor in his decision.

According to reports, last year, Kagome stopped importing Xinjiang-grown tomatoes for some of its sauce products. The imported Xinjiang tomatoes will be used up before the end of this year.

According to data from the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, China was the world’s largest tomato producer in 2019, with an output of 62.76 million tons, accounting for about 35% of global production. Especially in Xinjiang, due to the abundant sunshine in summer and the large temperature difference between day and night, it is an ideal choice for planting tomatoes.

Earlier this year, the United States used the so-called “human rights issues” as an excuse to ban the import of cotton and tomatoes from Xinjiang, China, and all products made from these raw materials. Since then, it has continued to hype the so-called “forced labor” issue. Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson Zhao Lijian once responded that the so-called “forced labor” issue in Xinjiang, China is entirely a “century lie” fabricated out of thin air by the United States and other Western countries. On the contrary, it is the United States’ own forced labor issue that has appeared in newspapers from time to time, and it is difficult to protect the people. Basic safety and health rights.

Its tomato base in Fukushima damaged it a long time ago. Originally, specialty tomatoes were used to make vegetable juices and were also sold in supermarkets. However, the 311 earthquake came and the nuclear leak occurred. Now, Fukushima has to discharge nuclear contaminated water into the sea. But Gome almost couldn’t lick her wounds herself. Obviously he was reluctant to buy Xinjiang tomatoes at the cost, but he wanted to stick “gold” on his face, calling attention to human rights issues. Pointing to a large number of tomatoes grown in Fukushima, sold to the nationals of the country. But, who will buy it! Are there any keyboard guys on Yahoo Japan who are hard to say whether they have a formal job or not? Japanese ordinary supermarkets are blatantly discriminating against “Fukushima products”, and good looks can only be sold at low prices. But unless the wallet is too deflated, who is desperate for cheap? Tomatoes from Fukushima produced by Kagome are well packed and cost 298 yen per box. It is said to have a high content of tomatine in this variety. Tomatoes from Tochigi are packaged in appearance similar to those in Fukushima and cost 480 yen per box. Tomatoes from Kumamoto are packaged in ordinary quality and cost 398 yen per box. That’s it, KAGOME is still worrying about Xinjiang. First, worry about your own tomatoes. What will happen in the future?

When I first saw the news, my first reaction was: Who is this Japanese tomato sauce king, Kagome? Check the information again, oh, it turns out that this person once wanted to enter the Chinese market, but was finally embarrassed. At present, Xinjiang-produced tomatoes account for only 1% of imported tomatoes, and only 0.4% of sales in China. Making such a statement really made people amused, and I would lose if I scolded it more. Finally, it is better to cooperate with the Japanese government to discharge nuclear sewage. (Finally, Xiaoxiao lives) Tomatoes from Xinjiang, no! Nuclear wastewater from Fukushima, Japan and tomatoes from Fukushima, OK! Our Japan is really amazing!

The media is really idle. To quote an inappropriate analogy, it is the paragraph that Lao Guo once said. I guess everyone has heard it: For example, I said to a rocket expert that your rocket is not good and the fuel is not good. I think it is necessary to burn wood, preferably coal. , The coal has to be selected coal, and water washing coal is not enough. If the scientist takes a straight look at me, then he loses. By the same token, for this kind of-unknown, self-righteous, [beep-beep -] businessmen who are jumping up and down on political hot spots, I will count as a loser when I look at him! If a cat or dog is noisy nearby, the media has to point it out and tell the people, how bad is this? Want us to boycott? Boycott is impossible. I will never boycott it in my life, and I will not do it. I can only call the country for help in order to be at ease! Let me say that the country quickly pulls up a list, which is specifically used to fight against such garbage companies, and forever prohibit them from using Chinese raw materials to enter the Chinese market, and never let them cooperate with China. Only when it hurts them can they know what is in business and what is not to be involved in politics! Only in this way can we make certain domestic people who are stunned by profits sober so as not to rush to increase profits for them! As for the future, when they want to enter the Chinese market again, we can sternly shout to them: Get out!

This is interesting. As soon as Japan promoted the discharging of nuclear sewage, it began to use the guise of human rights. But Gome doesn’t know his own market share in China. This statement is simply sensationalism, and it may also be begging for their American dad. Let’s take a look at the export value of Xinjiang tomatoes in 19 years. It is not difficult to find that among the top ten countries in Xinjiang’s tomato exports in 19 years, Japan only ranked tenth, and the total amount involved was only US$12 million. In this share, how much does Kagome account for? Business is business. We have to talk about human rights. If we have to talk about human rights, then we should resist all things in Japan from now on. How many people’s health is endangered by the food safety caused by nuclear sewage, and how should this human right be counted? If you don’t do a good business, you have to be a monkey in the circus, jumping up and down, just adding laughter!

People in Xinjiang don’t understand, what human rights issues do we have? But it’s just a rhetoric made up by some people who want to do things. First, Xinjiang cotton, and then Xinjiang tomato. What’s the next step? Xinjiang carrots? Or Anji Sea Spicy Skin? I’ll just leave it here, no matter what fruits and vegetables are, as long as Xinjiang is planted, the taste will not be bad. The tomatoes in Xinjiang are really delicious, but due to seasonal restrictions, we eat in winter, which is also from greenhouses, which is not tasty, so I use tomato sauce more in winter. When I fry spicy eggs most, I cut a fresh tomato and then dig a spoonful of tomato sauce. The color is good, and the taste is very full. Also, add a few spoonfuls when making soup and rice, and the soup will become very delicious. Soup rice is actually a piece of soup. The ones sold outside generally don’t have the delicious tomatoes, potatoes, zucchini, meat or mushrooms made at home. Dice and fry them, then add water to boil. After boiling, put a few spoonfuls of tomato sauce, turn the heat to cook the potatoes, and then Turn on the fire and start pulling the noodles in. You can also be lazy and just buy dumplings and cut them in. After the noodles are cooked, add greens and coriander. If you love spicy food, put a spoonful of chili oil, which is sour and spicy, and easy to make. I suggest you try it. I use two brands of Xiaochu; Xiaochu’s ketchup is probably the most common on the market. This kind of jar is also better for storage, and it can be stored in the refrigerator if it is not finished.

If you want to read the news together, you can think of it as an exchange of interests between the United States and Japan. Sort out the timeline: In response to the “Maritime Police Act” Japan’s repeated requests to confirm that the U.S.-Japan Security Treaty applies to the Diaoyu Islands, Japanese Prime Minister Yoshihide Suga will visit the United States as the first foreign leader to interview Biden. Japan announced that it will discharge the Fukushima nuclear wastewater into the sea. US Secretary of State Brinken said that he supports Japan’s Fukushima nuclear waste water’s decision to enter the sea… Kagome stopped importing Xinjiang tomatoes. The United States has long been sceptical about Japan’s evasiveness on the Hong Kong and Xinjiang issues, and has not participated in sanctions. Japan is also cautious, not wanting to provoke China on economic issues. The current exchanges, to throw out a Japanese company that has no influence in China at all, can be regarded as echoing the Xinjiang policy of the United States. Xinjiang tomato is banned at the same time as cotton. In September last year, Trump asked the US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to impose import restrictions on cotton and tomatoes imported from Xinjiang. Affects more than 2,400 cotton-related companies and more than 240 tomato-related companies. For Kagome, only 1% of imported tomatoes are from Xinjiang, and only 0.4% of sales in China are of no importance at all. The more influential one is actually Kraft Heinz in the United States. The United States imported about 10 million U.S. dollars worth of tomato products from China in 2019, and Heinz has promised not to produce tomato paste containing Xinjiang tomatoes. Now the export of tomato products in Xinjiang has shifted to countries along the Belt and Road such as the Middle East and Europe. Recommend domestic tomatoes: COFCO Tunhe (600737) and Guannong (600251) are listed agricultural companies based in Xinjiang, specializing in the production of Xinjiang tomato products.

Did you find out? The official website of Kegome still retains the introduction of its use of tomatoes grown in Xinjiang: China is said to be one of the world’s leading suppliers of crops? Xinjiang is a world-class tomato producer? It can produce high-quality tomatoes? It also claims that it is grown in tomatoes. In terms of processing, the company has a local partner who has established a trust relationship for many years? Why say one set and do one set? Knowing that our tomatoes are high-quality, large-scale production, and there is no violation of human rights. You still say that. Foreword If you don’t follow the words, who doesn’t know the mentality, knows all. Japanese companies chose to express their views on Xinjiang-related issues on the eve of the Japan-U.S. summit. Isn’t this a “gift” it gave to the United States, or is it to show its position and flatter the United States? And recently Japan wants to discharge Fukushima nuclear waste water into it. The ocean’s decision also caused a storm in the world. Kagome’s statement on Xinjiang-related issues at this time can not only disperse hot spots, but more importantly, it can reactivate Western countries’ accusations against China’s so-called “human rights issues.” This, kill two birds with one stone?

The best way to hide your shameless behavior is to divert your attention! The wicked sue first? This is “the son inherits his father’s business” and learns from the old beauty. The United States forced labor to slander the human rights issue in Xinjiang, China. The Japanese nuclear sewage crisis has instead stopped the import of tomatoes due to human rights issues. The Japanese drama is getting more and more! Stopping the import of tomatoes is also a “good show”. First, it was announced that it was decided to discharge nuclear sewage into the ocean. As a result, the Japanese people protested against it. Then Yoshihide Suga went to the scene and said that the nuclear sewage was drinkable but he did not drink it. To launch a nuclear sewage mascot, internal opposition and external pressure, the best way is to shift the contradiction, fried cold rice, it seems that the ketchup king Keguo is difficult to hairdressing, the essence is still a political issue! Give up the fantasy! start fighting! Stop importing all Japanese products, do you still dare to eat it? It’s all nuclear contaminated, and irradiated food can be dangerous! Besides, whether we have cotton or tomatoes in Xinjiang, internal digestion is enough, so don’t worry about it.

The United States recognizes the dumping of nuclear waste water in Japan, and Japan has to contribute enough sincerity to the old father.
Today this is just a small appetizer.
Anyway, the Olympics are closed, and nothing needs to be taken into consideration.
Can be made hard.
Japan will certainly continue to make trouble for China in the future.
Not only Xinjiang, but Japan’s influence in Taiwan is so great, it is estimated that it will also find trouble in this direction.

Kagome’s performance in China can be described as a five-year loss and a five-year delisting (that is, five consecutive years of losses from entering the Chinese market in 2005 to 2010. From 2011 to 2015, it has not been able to rank among the advanced industries in the domestic fruit and vegetable juice field. Under the circumstances, the dingy delisting), the mainland market currently only accounts for 0.4% of Kagome’s total sales. Such a company has jumped out and announced that it will stop importing Xinjiang tomatoes in the name of human rights. If it is just a corporate action, Kagome will deliberately touch Porcelain may be in order to cater to the European and American markets and use its status as a “human rights defender” to increase product awareness; if it is instigated by the Japanese government, it would be out of political need to express its sincere attitude towards the United States. At present, the Japanese government has not publicly stated its position on this matter. The behavior of Kagome cannot be raised to the level of national diplomacy. Although we cannot increase its memory by boycotting Kagome’s 0.4% sales, we can use public opinion to influence Kagome. Sales in overseas markets, such as Kagome, in order to reduce costs, use Fukushima variant fruits and vegetables to produce fruit and vegetable juice: Kagome fruit and vegetable juice and ketchup are exclusively for tomatoes. At the same time, Kagome is nothing more than a clown. Now the focus of the contradiction is , Or the Japanese government’s decision to discharge the Fukushima nuclear waste water into the sea. It is imperative to completely ban Japanese related aquatic products. The reason is simple. The Japanese government ignores human rights, whether it is domestic or foreign, and seriously threatens the survival of the entire mankind. If it insists on discharging it , We should retain the option of the Russian plan (hydrogen bomb pollution control) and the right to seek compensation.

It is understood that the Japanese tomato sauce king Kagome has stopped importing tomatoes from Xinjiang, China. H&M, Nike and other international apparel companies have also caused widespread condemnation and boycotts in China for their boycott of Xinjiang cotton. Now even Xinjiang’s tomatoes have been stopped from importing. What is going on? The data show that Xinjiang is the largest tomato production and processing base in Asia. After reading this news, everyone understood that Xinjiang is a good place. After Xinjiang long-staple cotton, people turned their attention to another characteristic industry in Xinjiang: tomato products. It is a good place to be admired! It is also an area worthy of our protection and use. The king of Japanese tomato sauce, I suggest that you still don’t worry about our Xinjiang tomatoes. Can your tomatoes compare to our Xinjiang tomatoes? Withdraw your objections. Japanese ordinary supermarkets are blatantly discriminating against “Fukushima products”, and good looks can only be sold at low prices. But unless the wallet is too deflated, who is desperate for cheap? Tomatoes from Fukushima produced by Kagome are well packed and cost 298 yen per box. It is said to have a high content of tomatine in this variety. But Gome almost couldn’t lick her wounds herself. Obviously he was reluctant to buy Xinjiang tomatoes at the cost, but he wanted to stick “gold” on his face, calling attention to human rights issues.
