Intertek supports food innovation in China as clients gain market access for their novel food ingredient and additives

September 27, 2016

Mississauga, ON – Intertek, a leading Total Quality Assurance provider to industries worldwide, announces a number of regulatory successes in China throughout 2016. On behalf of several clients, the regulatory assurance team in China has received several approvals for a combination of new novel food ingredients (2 approvals, 1 additional pending administrative approval), food additives (3 approvals), and animal feed additives (1 approval). Companies familiar with the regulatory landscape in China understand that obtaining approvals is a complex process.

Ms. Sandy Lin, Director, Intertek Scientific & Regulatory Consultancy in China states, “We are very happy with this accomplishment. Over 20 years of working in this industry has allowed us to establish strong professional relationships with Chinese government authorities responsible for food regulation. These relationships have proven to provide favourable insights into applications both before and during the review process that help us gain approvals in an efficient and effective manner.”

While Intertek continues to monitor the changing regulatory environment in China, Ms. Lin will be attending SupplySide West in Las Vegas, Nevada in October. Intertek will be hosting a wine and cheese networking reception on Thursday, October 6th at booth PP170, from 3:30 – 4:30 pm, to provide attendees the opportunity to meet Ms. Lin and discuss their goals in this challenging jurisdiction.
