Imported food has increasingly become a feature on Chinese dining tables. In addition to milk from New Zealand, coconuts from Thailand, cherries from Chile, red wine from France and pine nuts from Afghanistan are in demand.
As the supplying countries and varieties continue to diversify, imports have emerged as a vital addition to China’s wide range of food supplies.
At the Shanghai expo, the food and agricultural produce exhibition area stood out with the highest number and widest range of participating enterprises. The expo was attended by more than 1,000 companies from over 100 countries and regions, showcasing the widespread appeal of the Chinese imported food market.
