CIIE serves as feast for global foodies

China's appetite for imported food continues to rise with the country's upgrade in living standards. In 2018, just last year, the nation's food imports went up 18.1 percent year-on-year, while the total import value exceeded $70 billion.

That hunger for more choice and diversity in foods is on full display at the second China International Import Expo. Here, food and beverage companies from around the globe are giving visitors a taste of their many delectable items.

In its second year, the expo continues to provide a unique platform that brings food companies and consumers together. And It's serving up quite a feast for all at this global table.
