On the 27th, on the first floor of the provincial government office, Chungnam held an event to help farmers whose sales were blocked ahead of the Lunar New Year. Lim Seung-beom, head of the Department of Agriculture, Forestry and Livestock, Kim Myung-sook, a provincial councilor, and 200 employees participated in purchasing all 500 products prepared by the farm. To prevent the spread of COVID-19, rather than selling on the same day, the producer received a written application and distributed it directly. The annual production of Goji berry in Chungcheongnam-do is 289 tons, accounting for 73.9% of the national production of 391 tons. However, as 367 tons of goji berries were imported last year, which is comparable to the domestic production, the market is blocked, and the difficulties of the farmers due to the inventory burden are getting worse day by day. Director Lim said, "In order to solve the difficulties of goji berry growing farms, we will prepare a plan to revitalize the distribution of goji berries in the short term, and in the long term, we will focus on building a foundation for luxury goods and improving the distribution structure."
