Fast food becomes king in China

041225 Chinafood Hmed 5P.Vlarge From MSNBC, via China National News: “As the world’s most populous nation continues its transformation from a former outpost of communism into a place where spending power reigns, it has come to this: China’s cuisine is increasingly being altered by the growing consumption of fast food, with Chinese now more likely than Americans to eat takeout meals, according to a survey released last week by ACNielsen Corp., the market research firm.

The survey, which polled more than 14,000 adults in 28 countries, found that 41 percent of respondents in mainland China eat in a fast-food restaurant at least once a week, compared with 35 percent in the United States.”
