food_label_china_01 Food Imported to China must have verified labels

According to The General Administration of People’s Republic of China for Quality Supervision & Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIQ), from 1st April 2006, all importing prepackaged Food labels must be examined and undergo regular test*. All products should be passed by all Regional China Inspection and Quarantine (CIQ) departments before import. Therefore all prepackaged food should have their labels in compliance with all the China food labeling standards before import.

(* Labeling examination means the review on all the formats, layouts, text explanations, graphics and symbols printed on the label (including stickers, printout and all explanation material attached to the product). Regular test means the inspection process on the number, weight, specification, label, quality and hygiene of the import products.)
