China: Food Processing Ingredients
The food processing industry in China continues to develop and expand, creating products for the most populous country of consumers with increasingly distinguished tastes. Nutritious and healthy options are popular, as are bakery products and beverages. While COVID-related economic slowdown and expanding import requirements for registration and testing hamper trade, China’s demanding consumers with more buying power create an attractive destination for U.S. ingredients. Food processing ingredients with the potential for considerable sales include tree nuts, cheese, pulses, and frozen and dried fruit.
