China Food Safety Testing Market & Regulations Growing at a Healthy Rate

The food safety testing market in China is gaining attention due to high prevalence of foodborne diseases due to food contamination. Rising cases of food poisoning and foodborne illnesses in China has led to stricter rules and regulations from food testing authorities in order to control the outbreak of diseases due to food contamination. Moreover, growing consumer awareness and their changing preferences for better quality and safe food is stimulating the growth of the Chinese food safety testing market.
