Food Ingredients Segment

Foodtech meets Manufacturing

Following the constant increase in their net income, many Chinese people are looking for more healthy alternatives for their daily diet. More food companies are looking for new ingredients and applications in order to fulfill the rising demand from the market. 

In parallel, the manufacturing capacity in China of many ingredients is way over the current demand, both for domestic and export use.  This is an opportunity for foreign companies, having unique technology or food ingredient, to test and manufacture their products in China under OEM, Joint Venture or any other business model. In such win-win situation, the foreign company gains low-cost product that can address the market immediately via existing channels and the Chinese manufacturer has a chance to use its free capacity, engage in new product manufacturing and enrich its portfolio.
