Editor's Note: As China has been experiencing a surge in locally transmitted COVID-19 cases over the past few weeks, governments and organizations have all been doing their part to contain the outbreak. Even exhibitors of the China International Import Expo have joined the fight.

Several companies that had participated in the food and agricultural products exhibition area of the annual China International Import Expo have supplied food to Shanghai residents who are still in lockdown due to the latest COVID-19 outbreak.

Fruits and vegetables producer Dole, which will be attending this year's CIIE in November for the fifth time, has introduced various kinds of packages of products and offered group-buying services.

Nutritional solutions provider Nutricia, a brand under Danone, which will participate in this year's CIIE for the fifth time, recently donated about 230 boxes of Aptamil 3 infant formula to children's hospitals in Shanghai, including the Children's Hospital of Fudan University and the Children's Hospital of Shanghai.

Another infant formula producer Bellamy's Organic, which participated in the past four editions of the CIIE, also donated milk powder and noodles worth more than 1.6 million yuan ($238,014.75) to the Children's Hospital of Fudan University and the women's federation of Wanli sub-district in Putuo district.

The company also launched four types of baby food package and offered group-buying services.

Milklab, a drink and ice cream brand owned by Freedom Foods Group, a four-time CIIE exhibitor, donated 160,000 yuan worth of milk to Chonggu town in Qingpu district.
