At the beginning of February 2018 Professor Changying Hu from the College of Science and Engineering (Jinan University) visited New Zealand to take part in a scientist exchange funded by the New Zealand China Food Protection Network (NZCFPN). The aim of this scientist exchange between Jinan University (China) and Scion (New Zealand) is to establish a platform for ongoing knowledge exchange in the area of packaging food contact compliance. As part of her visit, Professor Hu gave a seminar on Chinese food contact requirements to interested parties from industry and research at Scion on February 12th. The aim of the seminar was to improve understanding of the new Chinese Food Contact Regulations, as well as establishing contacts with Chinese research organisations and testing laboratories. Overall around 50 people attended the seminar.
