Dairy Exporters Must Register to Sell to China

January 27, 2014
 
 

Wisconsin companies that export dairy products to China must register with the Food and Drug Administration as part of a process aimed at improving food safety in China.

The FDA will provide China with a list of companies that have been inspected and licensed. That will be around April 30.

Al Levitt, of the U.S. Dairy Export Council, says the requirement comes from China's desire to improve food safety and be able to trace where food comes from when there are problems. He says companies that are already export probably meet the registration requirements, which include recent plant inspections.

Wisconsin has more than 400 licensed dairy plants. DATCP says at least 100 meet export list requirements.

China is the third largest destination for Wisconsin dairy products behind Mexico and Canada.
