New Trends

Plant-based Foods Zone

Care for environment sustainability and personal health both contribute to the fast development of plant-based foods in the recent years with many brands emerging already in the market. The Plant-based Foods Zone is the answer to this particular industry trend in the region.

The idea is welcomed by brands in the sector such as Green Common, the plant-based food supplier of Starbucks who also sponsored Chef Table, ANUFOOD China’s latest held pre-show tasing & networking event on July 29, 2021.

Tea & IP Foods

Meituan, the food delivery app’s data in 2021 showed Guangzhou and Shenzhen ranked in top among the 15 cities in terms of new tea annual orders. To give a glance on the popularity of tea-based drinks in South China, the quantity of order in Guangzhou was almost 4 times the quantity of order in Beijing.

In addition to new tea, IP licensing on food has even been developing well on the national level.

Combination as such is also a concrete response to the visitors’ expectation surveyed both onsite and the after the 2021 edition of ANUFOOD China.
