Increasing urbanization, a growing middle class and rising incomes contribute to the rise in demand for modern processed and packaged food products in China. The trend is towards high-quality and safe food products. Market experts expect that the sale of packaged food will rise by 19 percent by 2021 to reach 121 million tons. Chinese food processing companies are forced to launch new, innovative products even faster than before in order to survive in the increasingly competitive environment.
However, at the same time this approach also increases the range of products while the batch sizes decrease. There is another trend to which the Chinese food industry must also respond: the development away from mere volume growth towards more quality and consistent reasonable prices. Furthermore, the trend of ordering packaged food online continues. It is expected that internet retailing in China will show an annual compound growth rate of 10 percent over the coming years.
Besides increasing competition, food processing companies are struggling with rising wages and prices for raw materials. This is driving costs and leading to declining margins. Flexibility, efficiency and conservation of resources are key elements which the Chinese food industry has to tackle while being faced with changing consumer needs and efforts to reduce costs.
