Jo Goodhew, food safety minister, said 13 officials from CFDA have participated in the programme. She added that China is a very important trading partner for New Zealand.
The scholarship covers best practice regulation, risk management, food processing and design, and the development and implementation of food standards. The academic component led by Massey University is supported by applied learning through study tours and internships.
