April 4, 2012 3:45 am

Well, if you think that is not a surprise, think again. China surpassed the US just this year.

We spotted this today:

“The grocery sector in China was worth £607bn ($972bn) by the end of the 2011, showed research published by IGD.

The US market was valued at £527 for the same period, which means it ranks second.

By 2015, the research forecasts that the Brics countries (Brazil, Russia, China and India) will be the top grocery markets.”
