China Introduces New Infant Formula Standards

Recently China authorities released new requirements for infant foods and formula and toddler formula. New requirements have been created for protein, carbohydrates, and micronutrient levels in these foods. The changes are made to ensure the safety of infant and toddler foods and to more closely mimic the nutrients found in a mother’s milk. Some of the changes reference other scientific and regulatory bodies such as EFSA (European Food Safety Authority). These new requirements will trigger registration renewals for products that are currently on the market in China. The new standards take effect in 2023 which allows a two year transition company for manufacturers of these products.
