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?

The Chinese firm has upgraded the ambient yoghurt category with the new ‘Zhenguoli’ range to cater to growing demands of the mobile generation in the country.

“It is essential we have found the perfect packaging solution to complement such an important on-the-go innovation for our Zhenguoli brand.”

The new ‘Zhenguoli’ yoghurt comes in two flavours, Blueberry and Strawberry, and is made from real coconut chips and ingredients, such as probiotic strain from Denmark and blueberries from North America.

Mengniu Group Milk Beverage Marketing director Ying Xu said: “Standing out in terms of premium taste and image appeal, it is essential we have found the perfect packaging solution to complement such an important on-the-go innovation for our Zhenguoli brand.

“Not only do we benefit from SIG’s unique drinksplus technology offered with the combismile filing machine, the modern look and feel of the convenient combismile package appeal to our increasingly mobile consumers, who prefer to consume healthily while on-the-go.”

Mengniu and SIG worked on identifying a packaging solution that meets the image requirements and convenience needs of consumers.

Combismile has ‘smart’ curves, ‘modern’ shape and easy-to-grip corners and offers a metallic finish to reinforce Zhenguoli’s premium image.

The new premium ambient yoghurt range comes in combismileSmall 200ml and features an extra-wide straw.

Each combismile-filling machine has the capacity to deliver 24,000 packs per hour and offers filling volume flexibility and drinksplus capability through opening and straw applicators.

SIG is focused on driving product innovation and differentiation to improve its value proposition by collaborating with business partners.
