@LoboTom I agree with the sentiment - it's incredibly stupid. But it is the cheapest (most efficient in terms of money spent per cup of pears). Otherwise the pear barons would find a different, cheaper way to do it.
Where I'm from (Norway), they farm fish in local waters, ship the fish to China for packing, and then ship it back to sell to local customers, and it's still certified as sustainably produced fish.
