Words like "a hard-to-buy face mask", "an empty street", "an anxiously awaiting delivery man" have constituted the keywords of the Spring Festival holiday in 2020. Many enterprises seem to have hit the pause button on their trade contacts. Overseas enterprises have changed from actively developing the China market to halting and watching. As a result, most of our business matching and business trips that were well-planned in advance have been put on hold. It seems that everything is unfavourable and grave.
Despite the impact of the epidemic, however, the market size of China is huge, as the world's largest food import market, and cannot be ignored, from the perspective of the development of imported food market in recent years.Data show that, at present, the retail sales volume of China's imported food market has exceeded 1 trillion yuan, and imports of aquatic products, meat and dairy products has topped 10 billion US dollars. In the past year, imports of fruits and aquatic products have seen a sharp increase, and demand for meat has become increasingly huge.
Besides, we should realize that, after the coronavirus outbreak, China's demand for the introduction of safer and higher quality food will reach an unprecedented high level. Recently, the Ministry of Commerce published a Circular on Actively Expanding Imports to Combat against Novel Coronavirus Epidemic, where the Circular has clearly required the active use of imports to increase domestic market supply of agricultural products like meat.
Therefore, in this particular situation, while having its challenges, there is also a good opportunity for imported food enterprises to develop and consolidate the market. How to turn crisis into opportunity during the outbreak? Food2China will provide different services to meet the diversified needs of enterprises according to the different stages of the epidemic development, so as to help work-at-home enterprises continue to develop the market in an innovative way, winning a first-mover advantage.
