Customs authorities at the southern Chinese city of Shenzhen destroyed 34.78 tons of "substandard bananas" imported from the Philippines.

The bananas, worth $33,000, were crushed and covered on Friday, state telecaster CCTV reported, demonstrating footage of digger squashing the products of the soil them into a pit for landfill. 

China would inform the Philippines of the incident and urge the country to take measures to ensure the quality and safety of the exported bananas to China, CCTV said.

China is the Philippines' fourth-biggest export market after Japan, the United States and Hong Kong. Tensions between the two countries were rising amid the South China Sea dispute.

The Philippines won against China after the Arbitration ruled in over the West Philippine Sea.

In March 2012, China stopped a shipment of Philippine bananas, a month before the sea spat on the Panatag (Scarborough) Shoal erupted, after it found pests.
