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?

Danone-owned Nutricia launches sheep’s milk infant formula

Nutricia, the specialised nutrition business owned by France-based dairy giant Danone, is rolling out infant formula made from sheep’s milk in Australia and New Zealand.

Karicare Toddler Sheep Milk formulation for children aged 12 months and over is available in select Chemist Warehouse stores, with more launches under the brand planned for next year.

John Hoare, the sales director at Nutricia ANZ, said: “As consumer preferences continue to evolve, it’s important – as market leader in Australia and New Zealand – that we’re able to cater accordingly. Also, this launch is an opportunity to serve other consumers with similar tastes in the region, and who value New Zealand’s renowned agricultural and sheep-farming heritage as well as the country’s natural environment.”

Karicare Toddler Sheep Milk is sourced from sheep grazing year round, supplied by two farms running 6000 ewes on the western shores of Lake Taupo. “With plans to launch a full sheep milk product range next year, Nutricia further aims to engage farmers in the greater Waikato region to help meet demand,” the company said.
