China is one of the Largest Consumers of Ice Cream and other Confectionery Products across the Globe

20 September 2018, China Ice Cream Market revenue is expected to reach USD 22.7 billion by 2025, exhibiting a significant growth over the forecast period. China is one of the largest consumers of ice cream and other confectionery products across the globe. Factors such as increasing consumer spending on food & confectionery items and increasing willingness for desserts are predicted to boost growth. In addition to this, the per capita consumption is relatively low which is therefore providing abundant of opportunities for further Chinese ice cream industry expansion.

 

Frozen desserts and ice creams are seasonal-sensitive categories. The market is projected to record upsurge in confectionery and frozen desserts consumption levels over the approaching years. The increasing consumption of frozen desserts is attributed to the changing taste preference of consumers towards ice cream and other dessert categories. The factors such as affordable prices, availability of varied taste options, familiar ingredients, introduction of varied flavors and availability of small packs of ice creams are projected to evolve the China ice cream market demand during the forecast period.

 

Health-related concerns along with the low consumption of ice cream, when compared to the other regions across the globe, is expected to be a major restraint, hampering the growth of the market over the forecast period. However, the large population size of the country and growing interest of people in frozen desserts is likely to contribute to higher consumption rates in the near future. Rapid growth in consumption of the dairy product is one of the crucial factor fueling the ice cream consumption in China. The speedy change in consumption patterns amongst the consumers is possibly expected to create new growth opportunities for frozen desserts in the country.

 

The speedy growth of the Chinese GDP is probably to intensify the purchasing power of the consumers. Moreover, rapid urbanization is increasingly evolving consumer preferences and habits. The market growth in the country is attributed to the innovations in ice cream flavors and variety of offerings and customizations provided by the vendors functioning in the Chinese ice cream industry. The presence of local and private label brands in the area is forcing the demand by offering ice creams at lower prices. The development of private-label retail brands is contributing to the expansion of ice cream industry.

 

The industry participants are undertaking many mergers and acquisitions and launching innovations in the product to boost the performance of the company. For instance, several ice-cream companies are manufacturing lactose-free ice creams to cater to the demand of lactose-intolerant consumers, as consumption of lactose causes many problems such as diarrhea, gas, and bloating. The availability of lactose-free ice cream is probable to enhance the market growth. Furthermore, low customer loyalty and shifting consumer habits in the industry are providing growth prospects for the new entrants. The companies are experiencing various mergers and acquisitions with domestic companies to reach untouched regions in the country.

 

Some of the key vendors operating in the China ice cream markets involves of Unilever, Nestle, Meiji Holdings Co., Ltd., Chinatown Ice Cream Factory, YILI.COM INC. And General Mills Inc. The Chinese ice cream industry has a fragmented landscape with the presence of a large number of small and few well-established players in the market.

Free Square
Perdido Street Station - China Miéville

This is a re-read for my RL book club as well.

 

This is the second time I have read Perdido Street Station.  I enjoyed it far more this time.  The first time I read it, I gave it three stars.  Now, it's four.

 

It is a weird novel that would also work for the cryptozoologist square.

 

It traces the paths of scientist in a city.  He is hired to make a winged being fly again, but he then gets caught up in rebellion.  The world building is wonderful.  It is like a cross between Dickens and Dr. Who.  There is much in the book about government and rights, and class, and moths, and bugs, and icky stuff.

 

I do wish, however, that the central female lead didn't disappear for a large section of the book.

Why not both?
The City & the City - China Miéville

Mr. Ceridwen once had a very large public tizzy about how irritating this book was to him, I'm sure made all the more irritating because I had also just publicly declared my enduring love for Mr. Miéville. That was probably like a dozen years ago, which is apparently how long it takes me to get over my amusement at Mr Ceridwen's annoyance. Far be it from me to actually read the book in question, because I might actually agree with him, and then a very good source of bickering would be ruined. That whole anecdote is probably more illuminating of my marriage dynamics than I would prefer.

 

But then it turns out I earnestly have no idea what his problem was! The eponymous cities of The City and the City are Besźel and Ul Qoma, which are something like Buda and Pest: cities divided by a river and topography, but ultimately bound together into Budapest. Except entirely opposite of that: Besźel and Ul Qoma occupy the same land, the same space. People can be walking down a street in one city and dodging people in the other. But this seeing and in seeing cannot be done obviously or delibrately; the cities unsee each other. The borders are fiercely maintained even though they are diffuse and internal.

 

The plot follows Tyador Borlu, a detective from Besźel, who picks up a murder case that appears to be a matter of breach: her murder appears to puncture the inviolate membrane between the city and the city. Breach is one of those things that terrify the denizens of those cities, and it's hard to tell if it's social prescription or semi-mystical woo-woo -- and this is what irritates Mr. Ceridwen. Borlu in his detective plot moves through both cities and between to find the girl's killer.

 

My take is more ¯_(ツ)_/¯. Why not both? The social contract is rigidly enforced in just about any city, be that city authoritarian or boho. People have hundreds of internal rules -- thousands -- about who they interact with and how, who they see and unsee. Its both entirely mundane and semi-mystical. To misquote a favorite poet: we live in imaginary gardens with real toads in them.

THE LEAVERS by Lisa Ko
The Leavers: A Novel - Lisa Ko
The story of Deming and his mother.  The story is told from both points of view, past and present, alone then together.
 
I did not care for any of the characters.  Deming as a child is great but as an adult, as Daniel, he is a jerk.  His adoptive parents are also jerks.  I felt bad for Polly, his mother, but she did not have her act together either.  Had I not read this for book club I would probably never picked it up.  The story was interesting enough but I never developed any empathy for the characters.
