China - UK's 8th largest market for UK Food and Drink Exports

China has seen huge growth for UK food exports and is one of the UK government’s priority markets for British exports.  PS8 organise the UK Pavilion stand at FHC, a leading Chinese food and drink tradeshow which takes place in Shanghai on 12-14 November 2019 and we are delighted to announce the 33 UK companies taking part on the national group stand.  Sandra Sullivan MBE of the UK’s Food and Drink Exporters Association (FDEA) says, “China is the eighth-largest export market for UK food and drink, up 10.3% in 2018.  The growing demand in China for premium, branded food and drink is a key target for the UK exhibitors at FHC, selling safe, traceable, healthy products to meet the high standards of the Chinese consumer”. Below we take a look at some of the British producers trying to tap into the lucrative Chinese marketplace via the FHC tradeshow.
