December 15, 2018- Shanghai Disney kicks off American Christmas Tradition with USDA-ATO sponsored event at Disney-Town!
The staff at the USDA-FAS Agricultural Trade Office (ATO) is always looking for ways to promote US products such as blueberries. Shanghai Disney collaborated with ATO to create a Christmas event to spotlight the American home baking tradition.

The event was attended by invited families from the Shanghai area as well as visitors to the Magic Kingdom East!
First, visitors walked the USDA display area and tasted bakery ingredients such as almonds, raisins and of course dried blueberries which are available online from T-Mall!
Bakery suppliers from the region attended and we were able to increase our network of local suppliers. Julia Zhu from Beijing and Mandy Chen tag-teamed this event and made some excellent contacts!
