(Aug. 5) California Giant Berry Farms, Watsonville, Calif., sent its first test shipment of strawberries to Beijing, China, for the 2008 Olympic Games, Cindy Jewell, director of marketing, said in a news release.

Since this is the first shipment of California product to enter the country, several packaging types were packed for review on arrival to determine which package sizes would be best for regular shipment to the Olympic Games that begin this weekend, she said.

“We look forward to receiving feedback . . . on the first shipment,” Jewell said.
