Canned food varies at home and abroad
Domestic is considered "junk food" and unwelcome canned food, as foreign consumers are more mature cognition of canned food, canned food in Europe and the United States and other countries, but the most commonly eaten "nutrition delicious" food. According to statistics, the average annual canned food consumption in the United States is about 90 kilograms, about 50 kilograms in Western Europe, 23 kilos in Japan and only about 1 kilogram in our country. For foreign consumers, canned food is the best meal at alternative kitchens on a busy working day, and cans are a great way to get rare and off-season ingredients. For Europeans, some vegetables are short-lived, such as white asparagus, which Europeans make by season, and then make canned food, which gives them a chance to eat even during the season. It can be said that canned food has become the most daily spending habits of European and American families.
Canned food has a 200-year history in the country. It is the most important export product in the food industry. There are over 140 export countries and regions each year. From January to August 2014, the total export value of canned food products has increased by 12.92% %. As a traditional agricultural and sideline products processing industry in China, the canning industry has been showing strong momentum in its export trade. The Chinese canned food is almost monopolized in the international market. However, relative to the hot overseas markets, canned food is not sold well in the domestic market, so it has been showing the situation of re-export of light domestic products. On the one hand, the abundance of fresh food directly divides the market share. However, at the same time, the frequent increase in food safety in recent years has raised consumers' awareness of food safety and easily linked canned food to food additives. This has further affected the development of canned food Domestic consumption.
This month there is a new standard to follow
It is understood that in May this year, the Ministry of Industry and Information Technology approved 1208 industry standards, of which 28 canned product standards revised to 2014 version, and on October 1 officially implemented. In addition, the Ministry of Industry and Information released the latest QB / T 4706-2014 Flavored edible mushroom can product standard in "List of 676 Industry Standard Numbers, Names, Main Contents (Bulletin No. 47) Japan began to implement. Due to the revision of the old and new standard number has changed, that is, a considerable number of canned food companies need to change the packaging label.
At the 2013 annual meeting of China Association of Canned Food Industry, Liang Zhongkang, executive vice president of China National Canned Industry Association, made the following analysis on the status quo of the industry: First, the export growth rate dropped and entered a negative growth era. Second, the domestic slowdown, the market suffered a bottleneck. Third, the pressure of rising costs affect the long-term. Fourth, the weak agricultural foundation and lagging model have become obstacles to development. Fifth, the industry is fragmented and enterprises fight each other, the industry is difficult to form a concerted effort. Thus it can be seen that as a canning industry for the processing of agricultural products, it is now facing various pressures from this international peer competition, technological progress and industry cooperation.
In addition to the above problems, due to the existence of enterprises to reduce costs, at the violation of food safety standards, add standard additives in canned food, thus affecting the entire canning industry image and brand building. Li Yi Chau, executive deputy secretary general of China Brand Marketing Society, said that as long as the different industries reach the common ground of successful brand building, there will be some help to the marketing of their products. Canned enterprises are no exception. Due to the current concern about food safety, canned food, as one of processed foods, should pay attention to the use of means of communication in brand promotion. "Consumers nowadays pursue aesthetic and perceptual aspects of the product, and the personification of the brand can promote the relationship between the enterprise and the consumer." He stressed that the safety and quality of the products in the food industry such as the canning industry remain the same Is the most important brand to maintain.
Moderate consumption of "healthy"
Recently, some research institutes conducted a survey on people's food tendencies. According to the data, more than 80% of consumers like simple foods that can maintain their original flavor, and do not want other ingredients to be added to their foods. Sixty percent of consumers are concerned about safety and health, Colorless, preservative-free foods are favored, and the packaging is simple, easy to eat and other features also have great appeal to consumers. Consumption in daily life, simple instant food products amounted to 15.8%. Canned food rich and varied, easy to carry, want to add some flavor in the business trip travel, canned food is indeed a good choice. However, everything should have a degree, canned food is no exception. Jiang Zhuoqin, a professor of nutrition at the School of Public Health at Sun Yat-sen University, stressed that although the consumption of canned foods is not so damaging, food is still as fresh as possible from a nutrition standpoint. "In the process of canned food, the nutritional content of food will be lost, processed foods, vitamins will result in loss."
At the same time, a very important benefit of canning is the ability to provide less common fruits and vegetables or fish and meat such as horseshoes, asparagus, tuna, anchovies and more. However, be aware that the canned food is already cooked in the process. Therefore, when the food is cooked, the canned food can be "given enough time". If the cooking time is too long, more nutrition will undoubtedly be lost.
