Please can some one give me some initial advise on where to look for Main land China , South Korea and Hong Kong food safety and Food labelling regulatory information.
We are a small chocolate manufacturer in UK and got an initial interest from far east for some bulk buying but I am not very sure where to start with regards to labelling regulation. If any team member at least hold a list of Ingredient and Additives which are strictly banned in these 3 country will be start so I can do NPD accordingly to start with.
I am mainly interested in
1. Do I need any special licensing / registration when planning to export South Korea, Hong Kong or Mainland China
2. Any banned Additives and/ or Ingredients . (Currently we do use Shellac, Titanium Dioxide, Iron Oxide, Natural flavours )
3. Does the labelling need to be in Local language for exported goods or can be in English
Thanks in advance
