Boston, MA -- (SBWIRE) -- 07/03/2013 -- The recent improvements in the state of the economy are likely to support the ongoing expansion of China's food and drink industry. As tastes and preferences continue to evolve and the spending power of consumers beyond Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou rises, we expect companies to continue viewing China as one of the outstanding growth opportunities.

Driving Chinese growth is a burgeoning middle class with its rising incomes and increasing number of working mothers, offering impressive opportunities for internationally branded, premium products. However, with Chinese consumer confidence still bruised following the 2008 melamine scandal in which the part-owned Fonterra Sanlu factory was implicated, the dairy exporter may face obstacles in securing meaningful market share in this increasingly lucrative segment.
