With a population of 7.5 million but only a small amount of arable land per capita, Wenzhou has developed a strong trading culture. Wenzhou was the first city to set up individual and private enterprises in China after the free-market reforms started in the early 1980s, and currently over 95% of businesses in Wenzhou are privately owned. Starting out with distinct disadvantages, Wenzhou is now one of the richest cities in China.

It is good potential market with high consumption levels, though it will take some time and a lot of eduction and promotional efforts to make it a ready market for American food and beverage products.
