These Chinese food producers and distributors are very good at what they do. Whether they are involved in dairy, groceries stores, liquor distribution or rice crackers; they have all found a niche and they are dominating their respected markets. Many people pick up oriental food from the grocery store, but does anyone really pay attention to where their noodles and sauces are coming from? Some Chinese food companies have their hands deep into world markets. Whatever the case, the popularity and profit margin of these foods are working out for the big Chinese food producers. Be sure to check for a ‘Made in China’ sticker on the next package of rice or noodles you pick up at the super market. It may very well make your Chinese food more Chinese.
