Food Imports From China Rising In U.S. Grocery Stores

May 11, 2011: 03:23 AM EST
Chinese imports are expanding their presence in the U.S. grocery trade. Chinese products account for 7% of the frozen fruit and vegetable market but for some products it is much higher, such as apple juice concentrate where China accounts for around 60% of the US apple juice supply. Contrasting positions adopted by Trader Joe's, which stopped selling Chinese imports in 2007, and Whole Foods, which still sources some  organic products from China, illustrate the ongoing public perception battle over Chinese imports. A Deloitte survey found 73% of consumers are more concerned about the food they eat than they were five years ago, yet most do not check nation-of-origin labels, in spite of various food safety scandals in China.
