The size of imported food market has been growing at a compound growth rate of 17.7 percent in the decade from 2009 to 2018, exceeding RMB 550 billion for the first time in 2018, according to White Paper on China's Imported Food Consumption 2019. Thanks to the rapid development of China's economy, the continuous improvement of people's living standards, the support of the open policy and the improvement of trade facilitation measures, imported food has gradually become an important part of the dining table for ordinary people. 

The development potential of imported food market in the future will be very huge, as the consumption capacity of Chinese consumers for imported food is increasing rapidly. Imported food is no longer a symbol of luxury, but a part gradually integrated into the daily life of residents, and it is accepted by more and more consumers. Currently, 57.5 percent of consumers spend more than 10 percent of total food consumption on imported food, an increase of nearly 5 percent from a year earlier. 

Rooted in the millennium commercial city, the Expo radiates its influence throughout the country 

In recent years, the import ports of China’s imported food trade are mainly concentrated in the coastal areas, and Guangdong Province ranks the first in trade volume of imported food. As the capital of Guangdong Province, Guangzhou is China's southern gate to the world, as well as a major port for imported food entering into China; and as a first-tier city, its influence also radiates to the entire South China. 

Therefore, the Guangzhou-based Food2China Expo will create a platform for exchanges and cooperation between overseas food companies and Chinese food import enterprises by relying on the radiating power of "Millennium Commercial City", bringing the world's food to the table of more Chinese consumers. 

Since Chinese consumers' demand for food has been upgraded from simple food for subsistence to health and enjoyment, safety and quality have become the most important factors that many consumers pay attention to when buying food.
