FHC (Food and Hotel China), the flagship trade exhibition of
imported food and drink into the Chinese Market
Food and Beverage producers from every corner of the globe will once again get together this November at the 22nd edition of FHC, which is on track to be bigger and better than ever. The show organiser, UBM - China International Exhibitions Ltd, announced that FHC, ProWine China and the alongside shows will occupy over 120,000 square meters and include over 3,000 international companies, making it the largest specialist trade show for imported food and wines in China.
In recent years, China has become more eager to source high quality food from international markets as well as their domestic markets. According to a report recently released by the China Cuisine Association (CCA), in 2017, the Chinese people spent an estimated 3.9 trillion yuan ($600 billion) on food, with a year-on-year growth of 10.7 percent. "The turnover of the Chinese catering industry is expected to exceed five trillion yuan by the end of 2020, judging by the present speed and scale in development," said Jiang Junxian, president of the CCA. Even during Chinese Spring Festival, Alibaba reported that the number of consumers who visited its Hema Xiansheng fresh food supermarkets in Beijing rose by 131 percent, Hangzhou by 129 percent and Shanghai by 89 percent during the holiday, compared with previous times.
