New Food Labeling Regulations In China Come Into Effect On June 1

June 2, 2010: 06:00 PM EST

After making amendments to the Food Labeling Regulations in China, the National Department of Quality Inspection said food safety laws are its foremost concern, stressing that new regulations will be in effect as of June 1st. The newly revised regulations include new requirements such as producer contact information, relevant storage information, and nutritional value information. Foods processed before the 1st of June can continue to use the original packaging, although producers are advised that they may also wish to attach supplementary information to satisfy the requirement. The National Department of Quality Inspection says that violators will be punished according to law.
