Although the Chinese government has taken steps to reduce poverty and increase the rapid urbanization of the country, there is a large section of society which live under poverty. The benefit of growing economy has not yet reached to the rural parts of western China. As a result the foodservice consumption in these parts are very low compared to the urban eastern coastal parts.
