Regulatory compliance and importation guidance for UK food and drink exporters

China imported around £60 billion worth of food and drink in 2018, commanding the biggest food importer in the world. Chinese palates are increasingly worldly as millions of experiential holidays taken overseas translate into demand for premium food and drink delights at home.  

Yet there are many dynamic factors at play constantly shaping this lucrative market, presenting foreign brands with challenges in keeping up with trends and tastes. The most important of these relate to the complicated regulatory framework and the fast evolving retail and e-commerce infrastructure. Almost each regional centre requires new consumer approach as dining and purchasing habits vary vastly.
Co-organized with the China-Britain Business Council (CBBC), the workshop "How to get your food and drink products through Chinese customs?" will offer compliance solutions to food and drink exporters to the market. ChemLinked cordially invites you to join us in this event and learn about food and drink import and distribution, mainland China's labelling requirements and how to utilize the new online channels for selling direct to Chinese consumers.
