Shanghai implements "toughest ever" food safety regulation for imports

Signal of change / Shanghai implements "toughest ever" food safety regulation for imports

By Anna Simpson / 20 Mar 2017
Shanghai is requiring all food importers to register tasting and inspection reports, following concerns regarding imports from radiation areas in Japan.

So what?

Food safety is a major concern in China, following several high profile scandals. Could Shanghai's new regulations be a sign of the city taking steps to enable sustainable lifestyles, adding another feather to China's 'green leader' cap, beyond its climate commitments?
