Jun 30 2005 | China, Peoples Republic of | Mainland China HRI Annual Report
Highlight: China's food service sector continues its eye-popping growth, expanding faster than GDP as newly prosperous urban residents continue to spend disposable income on eating out. Young white-collar workers are developing a taste for western food, and Chinese restaurants are developing a new top tier. Catering for weddings and other events is a new growing sector. The high-end market is spreading beyond the three major cities of Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou. Distribution has become more efficient and professional in major cities, but remains problematic elsewhere. Education and training in the use of new products is needed all along the value chain. Competition from other nations and domestic substitution is fierce.
