China Increases Oversight of Dairy Sector in Drive Towards Domestic Self-Sufficiency

With the hope that 70% of the country’s milk requirements will be met through domestic production by 2020, China is looking to strengthen the oversight of its dairy industry, while also calling on farms to adopt the latest technology, improve their internal quality control systems and reduce prices through increased efficiency.

Additionally, it is set to introduce measures that will ensure legislative compliance across the whole of the dairy industry production chain, a move that will remove the risk of infant formula milk powder being adulterated by harmful ingredients. With this new regime in place, it is hoped that, within two years, 99% of the country’s domestically-produced dairy products will meet all statutory sampling and testing requirements.

These new priorities were laid out in the Opinions on Promoting the Invigoration of the Dairy Industry and Ensuring the Quality and Safety of Dairy Products, as recently issued by the General Office of the State Council.
