How to save SQLite DB before production build

I’m building an app with Expo-SQLite which will store data locally for offline use. When I develop using emulator, I can enter data and display it. But as far as I understand, database file is created and stored on the emulator. So how am I going to populate and store the database before production?

Sorry if my question doesn’t make sense, but I’m new to Expo and React Native. Thanks.

So you have some data that you want preloaded into the app database? How about saving it as a json file and then loading it into the db the first time the app is run?
