Dehydrated vegetable industry is promising

At the Ningxia Agricultural Industrialization Experience Exchange Conference held in May, the participants believed that the dehydrated vegetable industry has a promising investment prospect and has the following advantages.
First, investing in dehydrated vegetables conforms to the direction of industrial adjustment in the country. China is a large agricultural country with 1 billion farmers. To reach a well-to-do level, rural industrial restructuring and the transfer of rural surplus labor must be carried out. China has abundant vegetable resources. The development of dehydrated vegetables can extend the industrial chain and increase the added value of vegetable products. . At the same time, as a labor-intensive enterprise, a dehydrated vegetable processing enterprise not only solves a large number of labor employment problems, but also can become a high-profit, low-risk export-oriented foreign exchange enterprise.
Second, the production and sales of dehydrated vegetables have broad market prospects. In the past 10 years, the trade volume of dehydrated vegetables in the international market has exceeded US$2 billion annually. Although the output and variety of dehydrated vegetables in China are increasing, the output has already accounted for about 60% of the world's total production, and it has increased at a rate of 30% per year, but it still cannot meet the market demand. In addition, due to the increase in the cost of vegetable production in some developed countries, many countries and regions are willing to import cheap vegetable products from China. China can take this opportunity to turn vegetable resources advantages into product advantages and economic advantages.
Third, dehydrated vegetables have many advantages over fresh vegetables. For example, vegetables made by lyophilization process not only maintain the color, aroma, taste, and shape of vegetables, but also maximize the preservation of vitamins, proteins, and other nutrients in vegetables, as long as they are packaged and stored at room temperature. Long-term storage, transportation and sales will not deteriorate in three to five years.
fourth. Developing dehydrated vegetables can improve the structure of vegetable products in China. At present, some developed countries process vegetables through dehydrated vegetables, frozen vegetables, etc., and their storage and processing amount has accounted for 80% of the total amount of vegetables produced. In the United States, the ratio of processed vegetables and fresh vegetables from the 20th century is 60. The 38:62 of the time rose to 60:40 today. China, as the largest vegetable producing country in the world, has only a few thousand vegetable processing enterprises, and it is small in scale and backward in technology. Its product structure is quite unreasonable. Among them, there are only more than 30 types of dehydrated vegetables and more than 30 varieties in China. Compared with vegetable varieties, the range is too narrow. At the same time, most of the high-grade dehydrated vegetables on the international market are produced using vacuum freezing technology, and currently only a few manufacturers in China can produce such high-grade dehydrated vegetables. Faced with the vast international and domestic market demand, China's dehydrated vegetable production base is still far from reaching its scale.
