World Seafood Shanghai has become the central meeting place in Shanghai for you to meet aquatic product buyers in one location, when they are actively sourcing products like yours. In 2016, the three day event attracted 31,441 buyers and sellers from over 39 countries and regions, including USA, South Korea, France, Ecuador, Australia, New Zealand, Chile and Russia, among others. This event focuses on the Shanghai and Central China seafood market, and aims to reduce the supply and demand gap by providing you with new business networking opportunities in key sectors, including aquatic processing, aquaculture, long-range fishing, cold chain logistics, e-commerce, plus much more. With a population of over 1.3 billion and rising, China’s teeming millions are hungry for top quality imported food and drink products. Imports of seafood products total in the billions of dollars each year. Rising wages, changing consumer habits and a domestic industry struggling to meet demand are creating an ideal export environment. China is already a massive seafood import market, and volumes are set to hit $20 billion annually by the end of the decade. World Seafood Shanghai is an event and I like events...

Reasons to Make Shanghai Your Next Market:

  • China is the world’s biggest country with a colossal food and drink market – 1.3 billion people live, work, eat and drink in China.
  • Wages and the middle class are on the rise, fueling consumption of imported goods. Real wages rose 400% from 2000-2014. Average income levels are expected to reach $10,700 by 2017 – a huge increase from 2012’s average of $6,200.
  • China’s middle class is already larger than the US’ at 109 million people. By 2022, 54% of China’s population will be upper middle class. More purchasing power points towards bigger export opportunities as China’s taste for foreign foods grows.
  • Seafood consumption is increasing annually, matching rising import levels and incomes. By 2020, each person will eat 35.9 kg, while urban consumption of seafood has already passed 40kg per capital.
  • Chinese seafood imports are expected to exceed $20 billion by 2020. Domestic overfishing and environmental concerns are pointing towards a greater demand for imported seafood.
  • Shanghai’s individual imports are on the up. January-April 2016 saw China’s second city import 34 tons of seafood – a 34.7% increase against 2015’s figures.
  • Foreign countries are already stepping up export levels. Canada boosted its seafood sales to China by 11% in 2015, exporting 94,000 tons with a value of $553 million.
