Yahoo to ship fresh Japanese food to Hong Kong shoppers


Yahoo Inc. will start a fresh food shopping service in Hong Kong, opening a website this month to take orders for fruit, beef and marine products from Japan, sources said Tuesday.

Using Yamato Holdings Co.’s parcel delivery service and flights by All Nippon Airways Co., the Internet portal site operator will deliver products to consumers in Hong Kong a day after they are collected from Japanese producers, cutting the time typically needed for such delivery by half, they said.
