Can cause problems when demand in China outstrips local supply such as happened in Australia in early 2017 with several brands of baby formula (Australia having a population of 24 million vs China's billion plus).

Added DiffLines:

* ''Series/RedDwarf'' makes several references like this; Starbug's recycled water supply (made from urine) is compared to Dutch lager and Kryten notes that one of the things that nobody wanted was American chocolate. [[Literature/RedDwarf The books]] indulge in this as well, as [[SelfInflictedHell some of the foods in Lister's Cyberia simulation]] in ''Last Human'' include American coffee and Portuguese tea.

* An old joke states that in Heaven, the police are {{British|Coppers}}, the cars are [[GermanicEfficiency German]], the food is {{French|CuisineIsHaughty}}, the lovers are [[EveryoneLooksSexierIfFrench Italian]], and everything is organized by the Swiss. In Hell, the police are [[ThoseWackyNazis German]], the cars are [[TheAllegedCar French]], the food is [[ForeignQueasine British]], the lovers are Swiss, and everything is organized by the [[TheMafia Italians]]. And the [[Webcomic/AxispowersHetalia Roman Empire explains this to you in song regardless of where you are]].

** The automobile industry is simply awash in this trope, but usually inverted, with companies producing elegant luxury goods outside their home region and more modest products within.
