Potato food to become an indispensable green food in people's daily life
The potato chip production line company attracts new and old customers with high quality, low price and excellent service. But behind the rapid development of the food packaging industry in my country's potato chip production line, it is striking that a large number of high-tech complete sets of equipment still rely on imports, and a large amount of foreign exchange is used to import complete sets of high-end equipment every year.
Such as plastic film biaxial stretching equipment, one production line is nearly 100 million yuan. It has been introduced since the 1970s. So far, 110 such production lines have been imported in China. In addition, almost all of the aseptic potato chips production line food packaging boxes and filling equipment used in the product industry are almost provided by Swedish Tetra Pak. Experts in the industry believe that the over-reliance of food packaging machinery on potato chip production lines in my country on foreign high-end technology has severely restricted the sustained and stable development of the food packaging industry in my country's potato chip production lines.
He Nanzhi, Secretary General of China Food and Potato Chips Production Line Food Packaging Machine Industry Association, believes that compared with foreign countries, the gap in my country's machinery manufacturing level is mainly reflected in technology. He analyzed that my country's technical research force is mainly composed of three parts, one is the scientific research institute, the other is the college, and the third is the scientific research institution within the enterprise. At present, the Institute of Science requires it to operate independently and bear its own profits and losses. Facing a change to the direction of enterprise, it is unable to take account of technical development and research; colleges and universities also have income-generating tasks and do not have the energy to do some technical research; and the technical strength of the enterprise itself is Depends on production, so the development of research is faced with the limitations of scientific research technology and laboratory equipment, and a new technology cannot be directly applied to production without the preliminary development of the scientific research institute. Potato food is a new type of processing industry and has extremely broad prospects in my country!
Potato is one of the staple foods of all countries in the world. Since the 1950s in the United States, due to the rapid development of convenient food at that time and the erroneous theory that eating potatoes will make people fat, the consumption of potatoes has fallen sharply. In order to get out of the predicament, American food experts began to carry out extensive research on the development of various potato foods, so that the consumption of potatoes was able to rise again after the 1950s, and it became the world of potato.
At present, potato food in the United States occupies about 31.7% of the entire US food market, with more than 70 to 80 varieties. The food processing rate of American potatoes is more than 80%, of which more than 50% is used for the processing of quick-frozen french fries. The annual per capita consumption of potato food in the United States is about 60 kg, of which the per capita consumption of fried potato chips is about 9 kg.
Since the 1990s, with the rise of the Asian economy, a new type of potato food market has gradually formed in Asia. In recent years, the total trade volume of quick-frozen french fries and fried potato chips exported by the United States to Hong Kong, Taiwan, Japan, and South Korea has remained above hundreds of millions of dollars. With the continuous expansion of American fast food chains such as McDonald's and KFC to all countries in the world, European and American foods that use potatoes as the main raw material are also popular all over the world, forming a stable market of billions of dollars. In developed countries, potato food has become an indispensable green food in people's daily lives.
According to the statistics of the United Nations, per capita potato consumption is higher in Western European countries, with an annual per capita of about 90kg, followed by Eastern Europe. Per capita consumption in Latin America is relatively stable, while developing countries are showing a gradual increase. Per capita consumption in Latin America and the Near East is about 20-25kg, and in Africa and the Far East is about 6kg.
The food processing rate of Japanese potatoes is about 70%. About 50% of the 3.5 million tons of potatoes are used for the processing of fried potato chips and chips each year, and 10% are used for the processing of quick-frozen potato products.
