Title: Feast Creative Foods introduction

Introduction I May 2019
is a strategic investment company
We bring innovative food startups to China, the
worlds biggest
consumer market
The Food Industry is Changing
For generations, consumers have been deluded by
Big Food and they have started to realise
that. The Fruit Loops of the world are fast
loosing market share. And the past years have
seen a vast number of innovative food and
beverage startups offering more transparent,
more individualised and more nutritious
alternatives. Some industry observers already
refer to the food industry as "the new internet".
China is Upgrading its
Consumption Patterns
The rise of the middle class, the increase of
products available on the market, coupled with a
lack of confidence in local food supply chains
have led to major changes in the grocery shopping
landscape. China has quickly become the biggest
marketplace for nearly all FMCG categories. Food
continues to secure a lion share of the overall
spending behaviour outperforming transportation,
the next ranked category, by a factor of 2x. By
2020, the Chinese online grocery market is set
to be worth over 280 billion. Providing enough
food at acceptable levels of quality and at an
affordable cost is shaping up to be one of
Chinas most challenging issues. And sales of
imported food will continue to grow at double
Our Mission
An Unfair Advantage
Feast Creative Foods is a China-focused platform
investing in emerging food and beverage brands.
Our team has decades of experience in marketing,
e-commerce, media and China's food industry. And
we pulled our resources together to support
international FB startups in China like no
other concept. Our sole purpose and mission is
giving our partner startups the backing, budgets
and brainpower necessary for a successful
launch in China. We are their import agents,
community builders, marketing experts, brand
ambassadors, distributors, networkers, sales
managers, trade show representatives and their
own China office. Our goals are fully aligned. We
work completely transparent and we're just as
excited about new food concepts as you are.

Marketing support
There are many different ways of launching a
brand in China. Most larger FB companies would
opt for setting up an own organisation, building
it brick by brick and with huge resources, both
capital and time.
Smaller companies usually work with agents or
distributors, but it can be a challenge finding
an agent who shares the same passion for
their products.
Feast offers an entrepreneurial path into China.
We finance the expansion in exchange for an
equity stake in our partner brands. This way we
have skin in the game with our goals fully

4 Phases of Vesting
Every brand needs a different China strategy and
every product will face different hurdles on the
way to the hearts and shopping baskets of the
Chinese consumers.
Initiation (1-3 months)
We vest upon an agreed valuation. Over 4 phases,
we develop and implement an individual launch
strategy for each partner brand with clear KPIs
and deliverables.

  • Market study
  • Focus groups and and product tastings
  • China workshop together with brand owners
  • Develop Chinese label
  • Develop marketing and communication strategy

goals are completely aligned and the brand

product in China.
