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?

The partnership will focus on encouraging businesses to make smart power choices to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and help combat climate change.

According to SRA, food accounts for around 25% of all manmade greenhouse gas emissions. It wants the restaurant industry to focus on reducing its environmental footprint.

Under the deal, Ecotricity will provide information on how to identify green energy, how it works, ways to switch suppliers and other related information to SRA members.

“The UK foodservice sector emits more greenhouse gases than Costa Rica.”

Both organisations will work collaboratively to develop various resources and assist businesses to make an informed decision on switching to green energy and lowering the carbon footprint.

SRA development director Juliane Caillouette-Noble said: “The UK foodservice sector emits more greenhouse gases than Costa Rica. So, we are really excited to be collaborating with Ecotricity to provide our members with clear, practical, timely and relevant information to help them make the right decisions about their energy supply.”

The association’s network currently features more than 8,000 member sites within the foodservice industry, including fine dining restaurants, high street, street-food, and workplace canteens.

Ecotricity founder Dale Vince said: “We are pleased to be working with the SRA and look forward to helping restaurants across the country switch to green energy and help them on their journey to making this a greener Britain.”
