Monday, January 7th, 2019

The China Food and Drinks Fair has been held for more than 60 years and this year’s grand 100th exhibition will be held from 21 to 23 March 2019, occupying close to 210,000 square meters in Western China International Expo City, Chengdu. An estimated 4,000 enterprises from 40 countries and regions, and 400,000 professional purchasers will be attending the fair. The Imported Food and Beverage Exhibition Zone of the 100th China Food and Drinks Fair will target the second and third tier markets by combining consumer grading and business matching through various channels, allowing international food enterprises to explore the Chinese market.

According to data released by the National Bureau of Statistics, the central and western regions in China have witnessed a stable and good economic development in the first three quarters. Sichuan, Yunnan, Guizhou, Jiangxi and Anhui led the growth rate by 8.1 percent, 9.1 percent, 9.0 percent, 8.8 percent and 8.2 percent respectively. In addition, the total domestic import and export amount in the first three quarters of 2018 increased steadily, before hitting a record high in the third quarter.

Furthermore, according to 2018 China Shopper Report released by the Kantar Consumer Index, most of the sales growth came from the southwestern and central provinces due to rapid urbanisation in the inland provinces of China such as Sichuan, Hunan, Hubei, Shanxi, Shaanxi and Guangxi. With increasing consumers buying high-end goods, inland provinces continue to outperform coastal provinces in terms of the growth of fast-moving consumer goods.

National exhibition delegations from countries such as Australia, Singapore, Thailand, South Korea, Indonesia will be participating in the 100th China Food and Drinks Fair showcasing their certified health products. The China Food and Drinks Fair has provided these exhibitors with ample resources and opportunities to enter the Chinese market. According to surveys, the demand for imported food, particularly, functional and fortified drinks, snacks, sugar and condiments from Europe and Southeast Asia are growing gradually.

During the China Food and Drinks Fair that concluded in autumn, the 11th “Matchmaking” (business matching) in the Imported Food and Beverage Exhibition Zone organised by Shanghai Master Expo Co., Ltd was well received by exhibitors. Combining the online and offline channels prevailing in domestic market, four exclusive sections of “Importers”, “Distributors”, “Small Formats” and “Group Buying” will be set up to meet the demands from exhibitors. Consultants and experts will also gather during the highlight of the event—Gold-Medal Products and New Channels—to discuss trending topics in this field so that foreign exhibitors will have a better understanding of the Chinese market and its dynamic factors.
