The GFSI China Local Group was founded in 2013 and aims to elevate consumer confidence in food safety in China by leveraging GFSI’s philosophy and approach to harmonise and improve food safety management systems in Chinese companies.
The group also aims to establish a mutual recognition system based on GFSI’s vision to connect food purchasers and manufacturers, advancing the “once certified, recognised everywhere” idea in the Chinese market.
Furthermore, the Local Group provides a platform to promote exchange and collaboration among all stakeholders (government, industry, and academia, etc.) to advance food safety in China and globally.


What We Do?

To implement GFSI’s strategic priorities locally, a reorganisation of the Chinese task forces took place in May 2018. The China Local Group consists of four task forces governed by the Steering Committee.
