The Benelux Chamber of Shanghai is welcoming you to a joint seminar with the SwissCham Shanghai. We are delighted to invite you "Food safety and import regulations for the F&B industry" on August 13.

At this live seminar at the Portman Ritz Carlton we invite both speakers and panelists to discuss the latest food regulations from Europe, importing and exporting requirements in markets like China and other legislative impacts.

During the half of the seminar, the speakers Grégory Lachat and Dr. Cheng Zhang focus on food export regulations from Switzerland and the European Union and explain the rules and requirements that need to be met when exporting to markets like China.

They will address amongst other:

  • Why this new legislation was necessary
  • The purpose and contents of the law
  • Results and Case studies

Our speakers Hu Xiyan and Lei Jing will talk about the Chinese market in the second half of the evening. Food safety is regarded as the top priority when it comes to the import of food. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, regulations of imported food & beverages get much more strict than in the past.

You can expect to hear more about, amongst other things:

  • The dilemma of food safety in the time of COVID-19 and the measures taken on protecting food safety in China under the pandemic
