The current pattern of China's fruit market is “ Nanbaiguo 、 Beixianfeng 、 Xi Hongjiu ” A situation of tripartite confrontation .

They correspond to , Baiguoyuan from Shenzhen , From Hangzhou Fresh fruit And Hongjiu fruit from Chongqing , Fruit chain brands with a history of more than 20 years , But the business model is slightly different .

Baiguoyuan and Xianfeng fruit are offline fruit retailers of chain franchise route . Baiguoyuan super 80% Revenue comes from franchise stores . The prospectus shows ,2019 year -2021 year , The income of Baiguoyuan is 89.76 One hundred million yuan 、88.53 One hundred million yuan 、102.89 One hundred million yuan . among ,2021 In, the income of Baiguoyuan franchise stores accounted for 81.3%, Regional agents account for 9.3%, Proportion of direct sales 5.7%, Proportion of online channels 3.2%, Self operated stores account for only 0.4%.

The net interest rates of both remain at 2%-3%.

The gross profit rate varies slightly . The gross profit margin of Hongjiu fruit generally exceeds 15%, The orchard is slightly lower , Keep at 10% about . The reason is to stimulate regional sales , Baiguoyuan will give part of the profits to the regional manager , As a result, the gross profit margin of Baiguoyuan regional agent is insufficient 1%. In addition, in order to develop online channels , The gross profit of products sold online by Baiguoyuan is not high , Also bear additional logistics and packaging costs , The gross profit margin of online channels is negative , More or less “ Lose money and make money ”.

obviously , Hongjiu fruit is a typical family business , This is common in the fruit industry .

The orchard is also from “ Husband and wife shop ” Make a fortune .1991 Graduated from Jiangxi Agricultural University in , Yu Huiyong, who once engaged in bacteria research in Jiangxi Academy of Agricultural Sciences , Caught up with the tide of entrepreneurship , Resolutely quit “ Iron rice bowl ”, From my hometown in Jiangxi to Shenzhen “ Fruit sales ”, And take out all your possessions , Xu Yanlin, wife of a junior high school English teacher in her hometown , The couple joined hands in 2002 The first Baiguoyuan store opened in Shenzhen in .

super 2 Trillion fruit market , Urgent need for the first listed company

China's fresh fruit market has exceeded trillion .

According to the information of burning knowledge consultation , In terms of retail sales , China's fresh fruit retail market has grown from 2017 Year of 9,390 Billion yuan to 2021 Year of 1.34 Trillion yuan , Compound annual growth rate of about 9.2%. China's per capita annual consumption of fresh fruit is from 2017 About 46 Kilogram to 2021 Year of 57 kg , Still far below 《 Dietary guidelines for Chinese residents 》 Recommended daily average 200-350 g ( That is, every year 73 to 128 kg ) Your fruit intake . therefore , expect 2026 The scale of China's fresh fruit retail market will further grow to 2.07 Trillion yuan .

China's fresh fruit value chain consists of upstream fresh fruit growers 、 Composition of midstream distributors and downstream retailers .

There are many participants in each link of the value chain , There is information asymmetry , Compared with developed countries , China's traditional fruit value chain generally has low efficiency 、 Multi level distribution , Problems such as high loss rate .

According to frost Sullivan , The industry loss rate is as high as 35%-45%, After adding multi-level distribution costs , The profit margin of the industry is low . With the development of warehousing and cold chain logistics technology , The loss rate is gradually decreasing , At the same time, due to large-scale centralized procurement , Cut procurement costs , The profit margin will have greater room for improvement in the future .

From the strategic positioning of Baiguoyuan and Hongjiu fruits, we can also see , Both are trying to integrate the industrial chain .

Hongjiu fruit prospectus shows , The company owns “ End to end ” Supply chain , Relying on a huge distribution network, China 、 Thailand 、 Fruits in Vietnamese orchards are delivered directly to retail terminals . According to the information of burning knowledge consultation , Press 2021 The annual sales revenue is calculated as , Hongjiu fruit is the largest durian distributor in China , The second largest fresh fruit distributor in China , occupy 1.0% Market share .

Baiguoyuan is not only the largest fruit retailer in China , It also has the largest distribution network in China's fruit industry , At the same time, it is also laying out the whole fruit value chain . By 2021 year 8 month , The layout of hundred orchards in the country is more than 200 A fruit planting base 、17 A fresh food distribution center , And a large number of transport fleet resources .

at present , There are only a few head fruit enterprises in China , Capable of constructing the whole industrial chain ecosystem of the fruit industry . In the process , It also needs continuous capital investment . The founder of Baiguoyuan also said , Listing allows capital to enter , Let the industry do better .

In recent years , Increase in fruit sales channels , The competitiveness of hundred orchards is gradually disappearing . Online traditional e-commerce 、 Fresh electricity 、 Community group purchase 、 Shang Chao 、 Husband and wife shop 、 food market , Are squeezing the market share of Baiguoyuan .

Baiguoyuan has also tried diversified development .2018 year , Baiguoyuan set foot in the unpopular market field of no shelf at that time , In Beijing, 、 Shanghai and other first tier cities have launched 200 Multiple unmanned containers “ Fruit box ”;2019 year 4 month , Online independent fresh food platform " Enjoy the fruits ", And test the water in Guangshen area in the second half of the same year " Selling vegetables ", Expand the sales category from fruit to fresh ;2020 year 10 month , Fali community group purchase launched “ Panda fresh ”, The supply chain operation experience accumulated in the fruit category is copied to other categories .

But these attempts did not seem to bring significant performance growth to Baiguoyuan . in fact , The complexity and early investment ratio of fresh e-commerce and community group purchase “ Fruit sales ” Much higher , Looks like a good business , But the actual profit situation is not optimistic .

It can also be seen from the performance of the two listed star enterprises ,“ Community group buying the first share ” The daily optimal fresh ,2019 - 2021 year , The revenues are 60.01 One hundred million yuan 、61.30 One hundred million yuan 、21.22 One hundred million yuan , Net profit is -34.74 One hundred million yuan 、-21.64 One hundred million yuan 、-9.74 One hundred million yuan . And almost simultaneously listed Ding Dong buys vegetables , Although the revenue has doubled 5 times , Respectively 38.80 One hundred million yuan 、113.36 One hundred million yuan 、201.21 One hundred million yuan , But the net profit is -19.94 Billion 、-34.97 One hundred million yuan 、-67.17 One hundred million yuan .

Maybe , Focus on fruit , Be stronger and bigger , It can be regarded as a way out . After all, the trillion fruit market , I haven't run out of a listed company yet .
