China has overtaken the US as the world’s largest ice cream producer.

A spokesperson with the frozen food committee of China Association of Bakery & Confectionery Industry was quoted as saying by a news agency that in 2016, China’s major frozen drink producers yielded over 3.3 million tonnes of frozen drinks, ringing up nearly 6.6 billion US Dollars in sales.

The spokesperson said, taking the output of smaller producers into account, China’s total production of ice cream last year surpassed that of the US. China’s per capita consumption of ice cream has grown from one litre 20 years ago to 3 litres in 2016.
