Trends - China
China is Australia’s number one export market, a major source of foreign direct investment and our largest agricultural goods market.
For several decades, exports and investment have underpinned the development of the Chinese economy
To maintain high levels of growth, the Chinese Government is encouraging a transiAon to services and consumpAon while pursuing more sustainable development.
With a populaAon of over 1.3 billion, China has emerged as the world’s largest consumer market for food and beverage (F&B), surpassing the United States in 2011.
According to a recent study conducted by Euromonitor,China is one of the fastest growing F&B markets in Asia, with an average annual growth rate of 35.4 per cent.
Food consumpAon paMerns in China have changed significantly as living standards have risen and more consumers are exposed to a greater diversity of choice, both locally and through travel abroad.
Chinese consumers are becoming increasingly discerning and more are seeking the following qualiAes when making purchases:
- confidence in food safety and ingredients’ integrity
- higher quality
- beHer nutri1onal value
- modern packaging
Increased interest and demand for Australian F&B is being driven by China’s strong economic growth and its rising per capita income. Emerging second Aer markets, wealthy coastal ciAes and not just the hubs of Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou, are providing opportunities for Australian companies to access a share of the market.
Australia is recognized by local consumers as having a clean and green environment with good quality products and brands.
Products sold in Australian Supermarkets are highly regarded and are referred to as famous brands.
Many Australian exporters have taken advantage of this compeAAve edge by establishing a posiAon as suppliers of meat, dairy products, fresh fruits, seafood and other products.
