Business in China Series: Food Safety in China

The Confucius Institute, along with supporting partner PIRSA, and FoodSA hosted a panel and networking event on Food Safety in China. The event aimed to identify the risks and opportunities for our South Australian companies relating to food safety in this very promising market.

Professor Josephine Smart of Calgary University, joined the discussion as the international keynote speaker. Professor Smart highlighted the opportunities for niche markets and out-sourcing, and risks of loss of government legitimacy, future health care burdens and irreversible environmental damages.

Our panel of experts consisted of:

Dr. Clare Jones, Department of Agriculture
Mr. Geoff Raven, PIRSA
Ms. Jayne Gallagher, Australian Seafood CRC

The event was well attended and provided the audience with up-to-date information on the importance of food safety in China.
