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?
  • What are the potential growth opportunities?

The Goleniow plant is being equipped with a new beverage end manufacturing line to produce 200 diameter (50mm) ends, in order to meet increasing demand for specialty can sizes.

The demand is being driven by brands that are offering a wide range of beverages, including health and energy drinks that come in non-traditional can sizes.

"By capitalising on our existing infrastructure and our established resources in Poland, we will be able to fast-track this investment and optimise our product portfolio in line with our beverage customers’ growing requirements."

The new line is expected to become operational in mid-2015, producing around 2.4 billion ends annually.

Crown Bevcan Europe & Middle East senior vice-president Peter Lockley said: "The installation of this new manufacturing line is expected to allow for the creation of new jobs and is a testament to Crown’s ongoing commitment to addressing and meeting our customers’ needs.

"By capitalising on our existing infrastructure and our established resources in Poland, we will be able to fast-track this investment and optimise our product portfolio in line with our beverage customers’ growing requirements."

The Goleniow plant currently produces a range of metal closures serving different food markets.

Crown Holdings designs, manufactures, and sells packaging products for consumer goods worldwide.

Its products include aluminum beverage cans and ends, and other packaging products to beverage and beer companies; food cans and ends, including two-and three-piece cans in various shapes and sizes for food marketers. In addition, its products include aerosol cans and ends for manufacturers of personal care, food, household, and industrial products.
