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?

From supply chain management, waste management, predictive maintenance and scheduled ordering to weather predictions, food safety compliance and new product development, machine learning is reshaping businesses, the report, Machine Dreams: The Future of AI in Food and Beverage Operations, explains.

In the latest edition of FUTURES – a service providing a series of free-to-read digital reports, designed to help food and beverage firms plan for the future – we explore the megatrends behind the growing use of AI in food and drinks operations, we look at how it’s likely to develop in the next five years, and we assess what food and drinks companies can start to do now.

The use of AI in food and drinks manufacturing falls under what has widely been dubbed the fourth manufacturing revolution, or Industry 4.0. 

As FUTURES reveals, that revolution is already happening. Download the report for free here.

This latest edition of FUTURES includes an interview with Joe McNamara, director for global IT at US food giant Kraft Heinz, who tells us how it has applied AI to its business so far and how he sees this technology being used in the future.
