China's new epidemic prevention regulations are boycotted by overseas food exporters

To curb the second outbreak of the new epidemic, China is tightening restrictions on food imports, but these measures have been boycotted by government agencies in countries where major food exporters are located.

The General Administration of Customs of China last week required companies exporting meat, dairy products and other foods to China to sign relevant documents stating that their foods were not contaminated with the New Corona virus, and that these companies had complied with Chinese laws and international safety guidelines regarding food during the New Coronation epidemic.

According to meat industry officials and exporters who have received the above-mentioned letter, China also requires overseas food export companies to agree to take all necessary measures to eliminate food safety risks in the case of new infections or suspected cases.

After discovering that the new outbreak in Beijing this month was related to a wholesale market for meat and vegetables , China issued the above requirements to overseas food exporters. Beijing's health department said it discovered a new coronavirus on the cutting board of a street vendor selling imported salmon. This has led to the safety inspection of fresh and frozen meat, poultry and fish products stored in warehouses, supermarkets and other food processing facilities.
