11 Trade Barrier

12 © DKSH Page 12 High trade cost High supply-chain cost and long lead time due to large geographical size of China Extremely high trading terms by MT channels along with their expansion in 3 rd and 4 th tier cities (new store opening, listing, etc….) 2.4 M stores located in 2,300 cities which need huge manpower investment for store maintenance Import Duty - Sugar - Sugar Free 10% 20% VAT17% Sub-wholesaler GM10% Retailer Ave. GM45% 1 GBP (ex-work) ≈ RMB 40 (RSP) 2,4 m + stores 2,287 cities

13 © DKSH Page 13 Other barriers Strict shelf life requirement by MT chains – 2/3 shelf life is the basic requirement while some key accounts even ask for ½ shelf life Chinese label regulation be more strict and still changed frequently without prior notice, rigid CIQ procedures

14 © DKSH Page 14 FF strategies … Focus on well developed 1 st and 2 nd tiers by direct selling to shorten the lead time and save the cost Expand to more 2 nd and 3 rd tier cities via local sub-wholesaler who can provide better after-service Focus investment on top 20 key accounts which can contribute 80% sales
