No! You are not familiar with  the true stories taking place between Hong-kong and mainland in the past decades! We had had ‘three flying trains’ which transporting living pigs and fresh vegetables from the inner land to the ‘island’. Aboard the train the railway workers fed the animals carefully to make sure the creatures would be still healthy enough before being killed in the market; In the vegetable carts some workers had to stand closed to ice pieces in order to keep the plants fresh who suffered leg-illness when they retired!
The Hongkong people have benifit from the ’milk’ from the motherland for so long! 
(The prices of pork and vegetables would be too high for the local people to afford if they import fresh things from America!)
