Kazakhstan Honey and Food

China-Kazakhstan practical cooperation has deepened continuously. China ranks among Kazakhstan's top trading partners and investors. Chinese investment in Kazakhstan amounted to over 42.8 billion US dollars. China's lending to Kazakhstan has exceeded 50 billion US dollars on an accumulative basis. Our two-way trade of the first four months of 2017 surged by 45.6 percent. Kazakhstan's exports to China are on the rise. Kazakh wheat flour, vegetable oil, soybean, meat products and honey have made their way to the dinning table in more and more Chinese households. Our two countries have identified and agreed on 51 projects of industrial capacity cooperation which will help promote Kazakhstan's industrialization and create more jobs for the Kazakh people. Kazakhstan has exported 100 million tons of oil to China via the China-Kazakhstan crude oil pipeline, and 183 billion cubic meters of gas to my country through the natural gas pipelines. Our two countries are exploring opportunities for cooperation on new energy including nuclear, wind and photovoltaic power. There are over 50 flights between us every week. In 2016, more than 1,200 Europe-bound China Railway Express trains transited through Kazakhstan, and rail freight handled by our railways reached 8.2 million tons and the number of freight containers increased by more than two-fold. This February saw the first freight of Kazakh wheat exported to Southeast Asia via China.

New Zealand Honey and Food

Six container units of imported milk powder from New Zealand arrived at the Xi’an International Trade and Logistics Park on May 20, after completing an 18,000 kilometer journey.

The arrival of the goods signifies the establishment of multimodal transport between Xi’an Port and New Zealand’s Littleton Port. The goods were transferred through Qingdao Port in Shandong province before being delivered to Xi’an. The new route cuts transportation cost and time, and guarantees the security and hygiene of the food.

Trade volume between Xi’an and New Zealand reached $15 million in 2015. Goods like mutton, wine, honey, fruits, beer, and dairy products from New Zealand were transported to Shaanxi, while mechanical equipment, beverages and handicrafts made in Xi’an were sold to New Zealand.

"New Zealand is not quite the right place for purchasing luxury items," says Zhang Chanqing, deputy manager of the tourism department for Australia, New Zealand and Russia of the Shanghai Spring International Travel Service (Group) Co.

Most tourists would buy local dairy and wool products, and honey, all of which are typically of top quality, since the country has an advanced animal husbandry industry, she explains.

South Island's popularity, in particular, has surged."The natural scenery is superb," Zhang says."There are no tall buildings but vast prairies and herds of cows and sheep."

Australian Honey and Food

Chinese Buyers will gain as food prices fall. Chinese consumers are expected to gain several benefits from the just-concluded free trade agreement between China and Australia, like enjoying lower duties on imported food and consumer products, industry experts said on Wednesday.

According to the FTA, tariffs on Australian wines, which had duty rates of between 14 percent and 30 percent, will be eliminated gradually in the next four years. Similarly the tariff for beef, which is between 12 and 25 percent, will be eliminated if the total amount is above 170,000 metric tons.

Dairy products including milk powder, which have a duty rate of between 10 and 20 percent, will also see gradual tax removals within nine to 11 years, with the special protection mechanism still in place for milk powder. Tariffs for nuts, fruits and fresh vegetables will also be eliminated. Duty for processed food such as honey, chocolate, cookies, cakes and other items will see steep reductions, said industry sources.

Russian Honey and Food

Chinese consumers enjoying the taste of Russian goods, and their lower prices

Russian food such as chocolate, candy, honey and bread have become a way of life in Heilongjiang province, one of the coldest areas in the country, where their imports are booming.

Chen Xiaochen is a customer who is fond of Russian food.

Two years ago, she traveled to Blagoveshchensk, a Russian city bordering Heilongjiang, and found that she enjoyed Russian food. She brought back a lot of Russian food-stuffs such as candies, bread and canned food, and her family liked them too.

"I searched online and found that there are barely any additives in Russian food. As a result, we now mainly buy Russian foodstuffs as their prices are similar to that of domestic products," she said.

The open market is sweetening life in China in every conceivable way.

In the northeast, the first freight train from Europe rolled over the border in 2015, laden with vodka, tiramisu and wild Siberian honey. Since then, Russian products have been all the rage.

Chinese supermarket chain Yonghui is just one business to profit from the Changchun-Manzhouli-Europe International Rail Freight Line, One Belt and One Road project.

Poland Honey and Food

"What's more important, consumer education is developing much faster, and Chinese customers are now very sophisticated," he says. "By mixing strong competencies, the great value of Polish food products and continuous observation of what the Chinese consumer wants, we can increase customer satisfaction and, as a result, sales and market share."

Metro China, a subsidiary of Germany's Metro AG, is selling 60 stock-keeping units produced or imported from Poland. Sales of Polish products, including milk, honey and vodka, grew by 45 percent year-on-year last year across its stores and the best-selling item is a Polish brand of milk, according to the company.
