– On March 16, six representatives from the China-based Hunan Science & Technology Department will visit The Food Institute headquarters in Upper Saddle River, NJ to increase their understanding of the United States' food safety system, including the inspection process and changes currently being implemented under the Food Safety Modernization Act.
This is the second visit from Chinese food industry representatives as last year, executives from the Hunan Provincial Quality & Technology Supervision Bureau visited with Food Institute President & CEO Brian Todd to learn of the U.S. food industry.
"The Food Institute's rich history makes us an ideal source of information for foreign companies looking to learn more about working with and within the U.S. food industry. Since 1928, we have been the best single source for current, timely and relevant information about the entire food industry from farm to fork. We remain committed to delivering unbiased and complete information and the fact that the world's most populous nation is turning to this organization, is a testament to our success," stated Brian Todd, President & CEO of The Food Institute.
The Food Institute has become a resource for several foreign governments and food companies, having hosted a delegation of food retailers from Vietnam and Cambodia and secured members that represent Germany, Italy, Peru and the food sector of several other countries.
