Foreign brands should respect Chinese consumers
In many people’s eyes, KFC and McDonald’s are healthy, convenient and reliable. “Bean Powder Milk” and “Bread Gate” play a joke with the public. Is there any difference between those well-known foreign brands and small workshops full of flying lies?
Some foreign brands such as Wal-Mart can abide by the law in its own country; respect the consumer with the greatest sincerity. But once in China, they would inadvertently become arrogant, sometimes even wag the dog. If improve cost of illegal sale behavior like the United States, dare they not respect Chinese consumers?
