SIAL China 2019, Asia’s largest food innovation exhibition, rounded off on 16 May in Shanghai bringing exhibitors and visitors a glimpse of the booming market for imported food and cold-chain logistics services. Jiuye Supply Chain Management (“Jiuye SCM” or “the Company”), China’s leading cold-chain service provider, joined the three-day show with its signature “one-stop” cold-chain management system.
According to data from iResearch, in the past decade, the market scale of imported food in China has multiplied at a compound annual rate of 17.7%. Food and beverages from international suppliers are now frequently seen on the dinner table; consumption cost accounts for over 10% among half of the surveyed consumers.
More than 4,300 exhibitors from around the world joined the expo, a great many of which are distributors or agents for imported food and beverage products. Remote farming and producing areas in China were also given a boost, with their dedicated speciality section; often described as the crown jewels of the local economy and a favourite for consumers in major cities. For fresh and frozen products of various categories among both imported and domestic speciality product, a well-developed and managed logistics and supply chain remain essential.
Jiuye SCM provides global fresh products companies with services including cold-chain warehousing, transportation, home delivery and digital management system. As a bellwether company providing solutions for fresh and frozen food supply, the company has developed into the first domestic B2C Cold-chain warehousing service provider and the first local fourth party cold-chain logistics company in China.
Guo Jingqi, VP of sales at the cross-border department in Jiuye SCM, elaborated on the company’s advantages and innovative breakthroughs during an interview with media at the 2019 SIAL China. “Jiuye SCM takes care of fresh produce from the field to your door through a dedicated digital management process. The “one-stop” service includes collecting produce, cold-chain transportation, cold-chain warehousing and delivery,” said Guo. “Jiuye SCM has stepped up efforts in enhancing our facilities, technology and innovation to “keep cool” in every detail and create the best service for clients and consumers,” he added.
