How Imported Candy of European Origin Effortlessly Substituted Local Childhood Sweets in Hong Kong

The FMCG market in Hong Kong has gone through some very dynamic changes provoked by the globalization of the bulk confectionery distribution during the pandemic. The general demand for imported candy has risen by more than 6,5% only during 2021 alone. Every local sweets storekeeper in the country knows that the kick of the online business revolution affected most wholesale Hong Kong candy suppliers in the country. If in 2018 the average Hongkongese kid would go to the local store to get some whistle candy, ring candy, curry corn roll, or chocolate glasses, Eastern Asian children nowadays prefer the well-known European confectionery brands such as Skittles, Mars, and Snickers widely advertised online and on TV. 

The drastic rise in the demand for bulk sweets therefore encouraged wholesale Hong Kong distributors like Contest Distribution to contact more and more cheap sweets wholesalers in the area and offer globally-recognized confectionery brands like Ferrero, Lindt, Wrigley’s Orbit, Mars, Snickers, Bounty, etc. Low taxation and free trade are definitely points of attraction to many international FMCG wholesale distributors who want to expand their business territory and we are no exception.

4 Ridiculously Simple Reasons to Choose Contest Distribution as Your Wholesale Hong Kong Supplier 

  1. We ship to both wholesalers and storekeepers. Regardless of whether your business is big or small, you can count on our consultation and globally-recognized candy delivery services
  2. The products we ship need no advertising. Most of the confectionery brands that we distribute do not need any introduction because they have been on the FMCG market for decades and have established an immaculate reputation. That means, Hongkongese, marketers working with us, do not have to worry about their product promotion budget. Company names like Ferrero, Lindt, Mars, Nestle, Wrigley’s, Pringles, Ritter Sport, Lavazza, Pepsi, Red Bull, and Corny are globally recognized and speak for themselves.
  3. We offer a personalized labeling service. Our marketing team is not only an expert in shipping and logistics but also knows how to seek the habits of the local consumers and get to know clients personally. As a result of that, we can recommend repackaging or relabeling of some candy in bulk which we may find inadequate for the confectionery market in Hong Kong. 
  4. Our logistics team is familiar with the regional economic system. We are well-aware of the liberal cross-boundary free-trade between China and Hong Kong by rail and road, as well as the minimal government market intervention, because we do export to mainland China as well. Since Hong Kong maintains a separate economic system from that of mainland China, the import requirements differ as well. If you seek solutions to any logistics issues regarding cargo trans-shipments and trade between the local regions, you should not hesitate to seek our advice on that.
