Since 2016, China is the second largest food and beverage importer worldwide after the USA. To ensure that the imported food products respect the quality and safety standards, China has a multi-level food regulatory system. However, due to the non-conformity and/or the irregularity of the quality, China must send back or destroy large amounts of food. In order to avoid wasting this food, it is important for the producing or exporting companies to stay updated about the latest regulations to ensure the conformity of their products. It is also strongly recommended to work with trustful partners.
The main rules to follow are listed below:
- Law of the hygiene of food
- Law for inspection of import and export products
- Regulations for importers and exporters of imported food?
