China: Food Processing Ingredients

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

China’s food processing industry is maturing, and growth is moderating. Consumers have becoming increasingly interested in eating more natural and healthier foods, while valuing convenience and attractive packaging. Food processing still accounts for 60 percent of the sector, however the fastest growth is now in the beverage sector, where the trend for natural, healthy, and convenient ready-to-drink smoothies, yogurts and juices represents China’s transition from “eating full” to “eating well.” Exporters are encouraged to consider China not as a singular market, but a country with regional differences and culinary traditions affecting how their product will be received. U.S. fruit ingredients (processed, and some fresh), dairy, pork and some specialty grains and legumes have the best food processing sales potential.
