By carrying on the century-honoured Finnish heritage in innovation and high quality, Valio China will stand side-by-side with Chinese consumers to create a better life together.
During the 30+ years since entering the Chinese market in 1986, Valio has witnessed the high-speed growth of the Chinese economy and has worked with partners to drive the improvement of China’s dairy industry.
Shanghai’s favourable location, the capability of global resource allocation and the economic concentration of headquarters can help Valio build its global sales, marketing and service networks, and reinforce its overall competitiveness and influence both in the Chinese market and globally.
According to Euromonitor International, China is a huge dairy market and it continues to grow. China’s dairy market size was 376 billion RMB in 2017. The market is expected to reach 484 billion RMB by 2022.
Valio’s connection with China dates back to 1986 when Valio collaborated with the Ministry of Agriculture of China to help develop China’s dairy industry by providing milk production knowledge training in Finland and Beijing. ■
