Annual revenue from the industry rose 17% to US$ 248 billion in 2005, the last available full year data. Strong economic growth and rapid urbanization have contributed to higher disposable incomes and increased demand from Chinese consumers for high quality processed foods at home and in restaurants.

Double-digit growth also means increased demand for certain high quality U.S. ingredients, including soybeans, poultry products, seafood, fruit and nuts, high value dairy products and baking ingredients.

May 5 2003 | China, Peoples Republic of | The Ripening of China's Food Processing Sector
Highlight: Recent China Food Industry Association statistics indicate that the food processing industry has grown an average 14% by output value since 1981. Industry growth is expected to climb to 18% as China implements WTO protocols over the next three years. As the current leaders of the food processing industry, foreign companies are poised to benefit from WTO-mandated market and legal reforms.
