The latest labeling system will become an insurmou

  • Detail

The new labeling system will become an insurmountable technical barrier for China's export of food. In the current international trade with the rapid development of global high technology, technical barriers have become a means often used by trade protectionists, especially the technical advantages of developed countries for developing countries, so that developed countries can use this advantage to protect the development of their related industries. Technical barriers have their concealment, especially in food, livestock and poultry products. Developed countries are increasingly formulating higher and higher technical regulations and standards and setting up various technical trade measures on the grounds of safety, hygiene and health

China's food and other export products are often closed, detained, returned, destroyed, and even subject to a comprehensive embargo by importing countries under various excuses. At present, the food labeling system has become an insurmountable technical barrier for China's export food. The food labeling systems of major countries are as follows:


in 2006, the EU issued regulation 1924/2006 on food nutrition and health declaration. The regulation has been officially implemented since July 1st, 2007, and is applicable to any food or drink sold in the EU market for human consumption. The introduction of the new regulations aims to ensure that the nutritional information provided by food packaging to consumers is more accurate and reliable, so as to avoid misunderstanding by consumers

the United States

the labeling system of the United States Department of agriculture for organic food stipulates that all foods with an organic level of 95% or more can be affixed with a green circular mark printed with the words organic in English and the United States Department of agriculture. Foods with an organic level of 70% - 95% cannot be labeled with special marks, but the transformer can be replaced or rewound; Indicate on the label that this product contains organic ingredients. Whether the food is qualified for labeling organic food must be certified by a specialized agency approved by the U.S. Department of agriculture. Russia

the measurement and control system of the Russian company adopts the controller hytestv6.0 developed by the world's first 32-bit ARM technology This controller is based on the 32-bit arm platform. According to the general requirements for toctp/food consumption instructions stated by the National Standardization Committee and implemented by the plastic ocean foundation headquartered in the United States, the new standard on the content of food labels stipulates that the origin, manufacturer's name and address, product name, product composition, capacity, edible value, use and storage conditions, application period For important information such as storage period, production and packaging date, code and food ingredient list, the consumption description should be marked in Russian, and the names of food and food additives must comply with the provisions of the national standards of the Russian Federation. The main impact of the new labeling system on China's food export enterprises has two aspects:

(1) the implementation of the new labeling system has increased the export cost of China's food export enterprises. In order to complete the component testing specified in the new label, enterprises need to pay additional testing fees. Moreover, the testing requirements of these new labels are very high, which increases the difficulty of testing, further increases the testing fees, and increases the export cost of China's food export enterprises

(2) the new labeling system has caused many uncertainties in export inspection and customs clearance. For Chinese enterprises, due to the lax domestic requirements, enterprises rarely touch the food nutrition testing procedures, which is relatively unfamiliar. Therefore, when making food labels, the efficiency is low, and the quality is not high. In addition, foreign countries have strict labeling requirements, In a short period of time, it is difficult for China's food export enterprises to fully comply with the requirements of the new labeling system

since there are few authoritative inspection institutions for nutrition labels in China, whether the labels made in China are qualified or not depends on the relevant inspection departments of the importing country to a certain extent, which will put China's food enterprises in a very passive position. In consideration of its own interests, the importing country can pass the examination and approval once the food exported by China to its own country is not conducive to the domestic industry, and find an excuse not to pass the examination and approval, which will cause great losses to China's food enterprises when exporting. The implementation of the new food labeling system has further increased the risks after entering the international market and increased the export costs of Chinese food export enterprises. Due to the delayed response of enterprises, the imported countries have closed, detained, returned and destroyed them under various excuses, causing great losses to China's food enterprises and a lot of adverse effects on China's exported food
