Industry Report - Industry Investment Chapter

For every dollar spent on labor (including wages and management expenses), about 28 cents are invested in capital in the Biscuit Production industry in China. The industry requires more employment than capital, although large-scale enterprises need a lower proportion of employees and use higher levels of manufacturing equipment, packaging and advertising to produce their various biscuit products.

Biscuit producers in China vary greatly in scale, with small enterprises accounting for the largest number of firms. Small-scale biscuit producers rely on larger workforces. These small manufacturers have the advantage of low transportation costs and packaging as they usually only service particular towns and counties.
