What is the impact of China’s Zero-COVID lockdowns on economic activity, consumer goods and the foodservice industry?

While wanting to protect the country from being overwhelmed by Omicron, China’s adherence to a Zero-COVID policy is resulting in a significant economic downturn. COVID outbreaks in Shanghai, Beijing and many other Chinese cities will impact 2022’s economic growth as consumers and businesses experience rolling lockdowns, leading to a slowdown in domestic and international supply chains. China’s Zero-COVID policy is having a demonstrable impact on consumer-facing industries. Access GlobalData’s new whitepaper, China in 2022: the impact of China’s Zero-COVID lockdowns on economic activity, consumer goods and the foodservice industry, to examine the current situation in Shanghai and other cities in China, to better understand the worst-affected industry sectors, foodservice in particular, and to explore potential growth opportunities as China recovers. The white paper covers:
  • Which multinational companies have been affected?
  • What is the effect of lockdowns on foodservice?
  • What is the effect of lockdowns on Chinese ports?
  • Spotlight on Shanghai: what is the situation there?
  • How have Chinese consumers reacted?
  • How might the Chinese government react?

The decision to expand the facilities is part of the company’s commitment to supporting the growth in the Brazilian can market, and will allow it to cater to the customers’ demand for infinitely recyclable and sustainable aluminium packaging.

According to the company, the Jacareí can facility was established in 2017 while the Manaus ends facility was commissioned last year. Both facilities are operating at full capacity and will increase production further.

The company plans to complete the expansion of the Manaus plant in the third quarter of this year. It will start the Jacareí plant expansion from the first quarter of next year.

Earlier this month, Ardagh Group announced plans to introduce an online product catalogue with a 360° 3D feature enabling customers to interact with its packaging products.

Designed using the 3D computer-aided design (CAD) system, customers can drag, flip, turn and look inside each glass container using the technology.

The company has redesigned around 600 glass bottles and jars using the new, interactive format, and introduced them on 17 April.

In January, Ardagh announced plans to expand its Valparaiso plant in Indiana, US, in a bid to increase production and meet the growing demand for beverage can packages.

Built in 1987, the Valparaiso facility encompasses a 135,000ft2 manufacturing and warehouse space. It produces beverage can tops, ends and tabs.

Ardagh currently operates more than 100 metal and glass manufacturing facilities across 22 countries. It employs around 23,000 people.
