Reasons to Make Shanghai Your Next Market


  • 1. China is the world’s biggest country with a colossal food and drink market – 1.3 billion people live, work, eat and drink in China.

  • 2. Wages and the middle class are on the rise, fueling consumption of imported goods. Average income levels reached $14,0070 in 2019 – a huge increase from 2012’s average of $6,200.

  • 3. China’s middle class is already larger than the US’ at 109 million people. By 2022, 54% of China’s population will be upper middle class. More purchasing power points towards bigger export opportunities as China’s taste for foreign foods grows.

  • 4. Seafood consumption is increasing annually, matching rising import levels and incomes. According to research, It is estimated that China needs 6 to 18 million aquatic products to meet the average annual growth rate of domestic aquatic products consumption of 9%-27%. In 2019, each person ate 20 kg, while urban consumption of seafood has already passed 40kg per capital.

  • 5. Chinese seafood imports was $15 billion in 2019. Domestic overfishing and environmental concerns are pointing towards a greater demand for imported seafood.
