Connect and Drive Sales
Hong Kong is Asia’s culinary capital and 4th largest export market for U.S. consumer-oriented agricultural products. With a dynamic food culture, sophisticated buyers and a world-class logistical infrastructure, Hong Kong is a natural destination to promote high-quality, innovative U.S. food and beverage products. Due to land constraints, local agricultural production in Hong Kong is minimal so Hong Kong depends on imports to meet its food requirements.
For U.S. consumer-oriented exports, Hong Kong ranked 4th in 2016, with exports reaching US$4 billion, growth of 10% from 2016. That is over 95% of the agricultural total. Hong Kong remains the 4th largest consumer food export market from the U.S. Hong Kong is also the 10th largest export market from the U.S. for processed foods totaling US$940 million in 2017, a slight decrease of 1%.
Within Hong Kong food and beverage imports, consumer interest in healthy lifestyle products continues to grow. Innovative products that offer sustainable production and nutritional value at a reasonable cost with convenient preparation are in demand. Busy schedules and dual income families are driving the search for ready-to-cook and frozen options for home preparation and premium, healthy options in food service outlets. Consumers are increasingly interested in food’s provenance and production background both at retail and restaurant levels and consider these aspects when making purchasing decisions.
