Chinese consumers’ demand for health foods– driven by factors like population ageing, limited availability of primary healthcare, increased disposable incomes and concerns about food safety and environmental pollution – has been well publicised in recent years. The boom in e-commerce and direct sales (personal shopper or ‘daigou’) channels for health foods have also attracted widespread interest.

According to a 2016 study by the Hong Kong Trade Development Council (HKTDC), China’s health foods market is worth more than US$144.2 billion. As of June 2016, the China Food and Drug Administration (CFDA) had approved a total of 16,573 health food products, of which 15,822 were domestic and only 751 were imported. 
As numbers above suggest the market opportunity for UK companies is vast but a sound understanding of the business environment and regulatory framework for health foods is prerequisite for a successful entry and expansion into the market.
