Case study: customer in the F&B Industry
Our pmo in China had a demand from one of our Italian clients regarding its market entry in China, with a request for a better understanding of the F&B industry. Our customer wanted to sell his products from Italy to China. His goal was to have a clear insight into the Chinese market and to understand the drivers of growth, including demographic factors, regulation, financing and market trends.
Daxue completed around 20 to 35 in-depth interviews with importers, market, and industry experts, executives from agencies and funding institutions. The interviews helped us form the basis of our analysis and thus assist us to build our secondary research, which helped this client in making crucial investment decisions.
Daxue is not only involved in project management in China, but we are dedicated, passionate and experienced enough to accompany every business throughout his journey in the Chinese market.
