1.NHNE's First Forum on China's Market - Entry Strategy for Foreign Dietary Supplements
The Chinese market for nutritional health products, which features a large consumer group and high consumption demand, has been gaining favor from more and more overseas brands. With the formal implementation of the Management Method for the Registration and Filing of Health Products, the application for the registration of any nutritional supplement can be submitted as long as it meets the requirements of the ‘Raw Materials List’, and thus the process of entering the market is dramatically shortened. On January 25th, the first application for registration was approved; on January 27th, the website of the Health Products Review Center announced the registration information of 17 kinds of imported health products. It is reported that a number of other products are being examined, and nutritional supplements will be imported to China in a faster manner.
In order to meet the needs of overseas brands to open up the Chinese market and help distributors explore business opportunities for overseas nutritional health products, we will hold the Summit Forum for the entry of overseas nutritional health products into China. We will invite market consulting, investment and financing institutions to elaborate on the status quo and future opportunities of the Chinese market for nutritional health products; we will also invite industry experts and terminal markets to comprehensively study how overseas nutritional health products (e.g. dietary supplements) enter the Chinese market, with the aim of providing professional business solutions for international trade in nutritional health products.
