Countdown to CIFSQ - "Food is essential, and safety should be a top priority," says Vice Premier Li Keqiang

The sixth annual China International Food Safety & Quality (CIFSQ) Conference & Expo opens in Shanghai, China on the 7th November 2012. CIFSQ is an important event that brings together food safety professionals across China and from around the world for two intensive days of learning and networking.  Cor Groenveld, LRQA’s Global Head of Food Supply Chain Services will be presenting a joint session with Mars Chocolate China on 8th Nov entitled "How the Mars customised audit program helps to drive food safety across their supply chain".

Food safety remains a key issue in China and across Asia.  Vice Premier Li Keqiang, Head of the National Food Safety Commission, State Council, P.R.C recently stated, "Food is essential, and safety should be a top priority. We must create a food safety system of self-disciplined food companies with integrity, effective government supervision and broad public support to improve overall food safety."
