Sector trend analysis - pulse trends in China: A74-3/83-2017E-PDF

“In 2016, China was estimated to be the third-largest market for pulse consumption in the Asia Pacific region with total volume sales amounting to 2.3 million tonnes. China makes up 6% of the region’s pulse market with a 1.7kg per capita in consumption. Although, China makes up a substantive portion of the pulse sales in the region, there remains to be a small consumer base for pulses in bulk. This is due to limited use of pulses in daily meals and greater consumer preference for fresh pulses rather than dry pulses. According to Euromonitor, pulses in China are mostly used to cook porridge or make deserts, all of which are items not used in daily meals. However, the use of pulses as a value-added ingredient is on the rise, with 2014 and 2015 seeing the highest number of new product introductions that contains pulses as an ingredient”--Introd., p. 2.
