Keeping abreast of the latest China Food Safety Law updates to grasp new business opportunities

The food market of Hong Kong and China are linked inextricably. Majority of Hong Kong food is imported while China is the most crucial food supply source. Hong Kong is also a platform of re-exportation of foreign food to mainland China. Since China revised its food safety law with an addition of 50 new articles on 1 October 2015, the Chinese government continues revise and refine the rules and regulations. The ever-evolving regulations do  not only bring stricter governance on domestic and foreign food, but also new challenges to Hong Kong food and related industries exporting to or providing food services in mainland China. How could we turn the challenges into new business opportunities? The training gives you an overview of the most updated food laws and more importantly, it serves as a strategic guide to help you understand and precisely interpret the laws to respond accordingly.
