Chen also said that it was difficult for the company to make profit on the project although it was subsidized by the government, most of the operations and wages were still covered by the company. They had to set sales goals to keep the company afloat since it was new, but still they made sure on keeping the grocery quality.
Chen also said that they have introduced a strict monitoring system to control quality and check on pesticide residues despite the project’s lack of profitability. Each van have a sales target especially vans in the Futian, Luohu, Yantian and Nanshan districts where it can easily reach their targets.
