A decline of Western Fast Food consumption in China?

A new report by McKinsey & Company argues that China seems to be abandoning Western fast food for healthier options. Only 51% of consumers in China said they ate Western fast food in 2015, signalling a drop from the 67% who said they consumed fast food in 2012.

The survey by McKinsey which took place between September and November 2015, included 10,000 respondents from 44 cities, representing approximately 75% of China’s GDP and one-half of the Chinese population.

The FCRN has released an extensive report on the changes seen in China’s food system over the past 30 years: see Appetite for change: social, economic and environmental transformations in China’s food system and its associated briefing papers.
