It was learned from the department of inspection and quarantine that the inspected imported snacks had reached 46,000 tons in the past 11 months of 2016, with the year-on-year growth of 46%. More than 4000 kinds of snacks including chips, pudding, popcorn, chewing gum, chocolate, fruit juice jelly, cookies and vanilla cream cake with caramel have gained rapid growth. Insiders reminded that people must pay attention during purchase.
It was known that the increase of imported snacks in Tianjin was connected with the change of consumption idea and the change of purchase from imported luxuries to imported snacks. In the meanwhile, people have more purchasing power because of sustainable economic development of China. On the other hand, it was also related to the establishment of Tianjin Pilot Free Trade Zone and the stimulation from multiple free trade conveniences for import. With the approaching of the Spring Festival, the enhanced predictable demand of domestic market has stimulated the increase of import, thus resulting in a significant comparative growth for the recent two months.
