China-USA Roundtable at NBJ Summit 2011
The China-USA Roundtable sponsored by the J.H. Chapman Group, InterChina and Baker & McKenzie (China), in collaboration with the Nutrition Business Journal (NBJ), was held on July 19, 2011 prior to the NBJ Summit 2011 in Dana Point, California. Highlights included:
The China Opportunities
China's growing food sector is pulling the world's ingredients manufacturers to China. Food and beverage customers have become largely reliant on their suppliers to help them develop new products and remain competitive.
The China Conundrum
China will continue to be a major supplier to the world, particularly in the ingredients sector, dominating certain segments. Cost differential continues to be such that the question is not whether to do business with China but how.
Supplier & Market
From a supply and demand perspective, as one of the 'BRIC' markets, China is the largest and also growing the fastest. Key drivers transforming China's food and beverage and the health, nutrition & wellness categories include: urbanization trends, aging population, the younger generation's eventual market impact, the food culture evolution, diversity of choice, and ongoing modernization of distribution channels.
We are pleased to announce the availability of the following China-USA Roundtable presentations:
