Due to traditional Chinese dietary patterns and lower living standards, the routine consumption of dairy products is limited across the country. China is currently the third-largest dairy producer in the world, after India and the United States. However, per capita consumption of dairy products in China is less than one-quarter of the global average and lower than in many other developing countries. Moreover, dairy product consumption varies considerably across China. Consumption in rural regions is less than 10.0% of that in urban areas.
Firms within the Dairy Product Production industry purchase cattle milk, sheep milk and other raw materials to produce liquid milk and dairy products. Enterprises cleanse, sterilize, homogenize, concentrate, dry and ferment products, and then the finished milk and dairy products are packaged and sold to wholesalers and retailers for resale to final consumers.
