Company to open Chinese mouths for Danish organic food
Exporting organic food to China is complicated. Organic certification and permits are complex to obtain and require constant renewal. This makes the system difficult to navigate, and expensive for small scale producers. A new company located with Copenhagen Science City-partner Copenhagen Bio Science Center (COBIS) hopes to make it easier and cheaper to sell Danish organic food to the Chinese.
The company, Danish-Chinese Organic Food Center, opened its offices at a ceremony in September. Member of Parliament , Ms. May-Brit Kattrup, Deputy Director General of Registration Department of CNCA in China, Mr. Huang Bin and Economic Counsellor of Chinese Embassy in Denmark, Mrs. Zhang as well as Søren Tegen Pedersen, director in the City of Copenhagen were present to support the center.
”The cooperation on organic industry between China and Denmark has been long and pragmatic, Danish organic food in Chinese market is welcomed which will provide more alternatives for Chinese consumers.
We sincerely hope that through the platform of Danish-Chinese organic food center, we are able to improve the cooperation on organic area between two sides in terms of certification, R&D as well as market, facilitate the organic products trade between two sides, and finally achieve mutual benefit and win-win situation in organic industry field between China and Denmark.” said Mr. Huang Bin, Deputy Director General of Registration Department of CNCA in China.
