European Delicatessen in China

Ranging from wine and cheese to cold cuts and cookies, this German delicatessen company has been serving excellent quality foods in Europe for decades.  Exploring the Chinese market is a natural next step to bringing the best of European foods to the increasingly discerning tastebuds around the world.

Handpicked represented them in exploring their opportunities in China and was able to seek out a potential collaboration with Carrefour to supply a full range of delicatessen in their premium-level supermarkets in China.

Perhaps you’ve tried to sell in China already but without much success.  There’s a lot of information on China online and it is hard to decipher what’s relevant to you.  Consulting companies out there sell strategies, but it’s ultimately up to you to be there and execute them by yourself.

With Handpicked, aside from strategy, you get a local hands-on team in China that executes.  You don’t have to try it alone anymore and spend valuable resources on trial-and-error.

We do it for you, with you.

Can we help you too?

If you’re looking for local assistance from an experienced team in China,
Handpicked might just be for you.
