Inconvenience in shopping in farming and pasturing area in Tibet has been recently solved by introducing farm house supermarket. Another 300 farmhouse supermarkets will be built in those areas this year.
The "hundreds and thousands of villages market project" has been implemented in farming and pasturing area since 2006 and 180 farmhouse supermarkets have been built.
The consumption environment in farming and pasturing area in Tibet is relatively poor. The orientation of the project is to solve the problem of buying goods in farming and pasturing area and it will provide farmers and herdsmen with good quality products at very cheap prices.
The farmhouse supermarket also undertakes the responsibility of purchasing farming and pasturing products from farmers and herdsmen who can also sell their products directly or even exchange goods with the supermarket.
The farmhouse supermarket is very popular at present in Lhasa, Lhoka and Nyingchi and it has become an icon project of countryside consumption and circulating network along the Sichuan-Tibet highway.
