    China Regulatory and Supply Chain Seminar
    Access the Chinese Nutraceutical and Health Industry Market
    Sponsored by China Gate and TSI Pharmaceuticals

    By 2030 China’s healthcare market is targeted to reach RMB 16,000 billion (around AUS$ 3.3 trillion) meaning every health sector will have more opportunities.

    The demand for complementary medicines is growing rapidly in China as an increasingly health-conscious population searches for trusted products to enhance their wellbeing. The Chinese health food market is currently valued at US$30 billion and is projected to grow by 10 per cent every year between now and 2025. The Chinese Government has also made health a priority in its Plan of Health China 2030 and Five-Year Plan (2016–2020), with a suite of national initiatives that support continued demand for complementary medicines, known as nutraceuticals and health foods in China.

    The nutraceutical and health food industry has seen vast changes within China’s regulatory system including new cross-border e-commerce (CBEC) policies and revisions to infant formula and health food standards. Chinese demand for complementary medicines and natural products shows no signs of slowing, but would-be exporters need to be mindful of the key trends shaping the market for business success.

    Complementary Medicines Australia (CMA) in association with the China Chamber of Commerce for the Import and Export of Medicines and Health Products (CCCMHPIE) are pleased to offer members a half-day seminar and networking event. Discover valuable information about the China nutraceutical and health market trends and regulations, along with effective ways to diversify and boost marketing strategy. This inaugural seminar will include a networking lunch and afternoon program commencing the day before CMA’s Annual Conference, 9th October 2019.

    What to Expect:
    This seminar features insights into new materials used in health foods, the latest in China’s Policy and Regulations and how to best promote your health food product in China as well as making the most of the Daigou and Cross Border Channel’s.
