China has established a solid but rather complex regulatory system for food additives. This system can be difficult to navigate for European small and medium-sized food producers who often have questions about the scope and permitted usage of food additives in China. Furthermore, the distinction between new food additives and new food raw materials might be confusing to some.
To provide practical guidance to European SMEs on regulations pertaining to food additives, the EU SME Centre, in collaboration with the China-Italy Chamber of Commerce, organised in January 2023 a webinar based on the recently published 2022 Guidelines “Food Additives in China: Regulations and Practical Cases”.
Watch this webinar to hear the guidelines’ authors provide an overview of the laws and regulations governing food additives in China, discuss the latest labelling requirements and introduce the expected changes to the regulations.
