Economic diplomacy – China – Cooperation in the agri-food sector (March 1, 2015)


We welcome the decision by the Chinese health authorities to authorize three French charcuterie producers (Brocéliande/ Cooperl group; Haraguy/ Delpeyrat group; SACCOR) to export to China.

France’s excellent health standards and procedures in this area were acknowledged through the signing, during the prime minister’s visit to China in January, of a cooperation agreement between the French Agency for Food, Environmental and Occupational Health & Safety (ANSES) and the China National Center for Food Safety Risk Assessment (CFSA).

Bilateral cooperation in the agri-food sector is a promising area for the French-Chinese partnership, which Ms. Martine Aubry, in her capacity as Special Representative of the Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Development for China, is promoting on behalf of France.
