Boca Raton, FLA., July 23, 2014— CRC Press / Taylor & Francis Group, a leading global science, technology and medicine publisher, announces the release of the groundbreaking new book, Food Safety in China: A Comprehensive Review, written by Professor Linhai Wu, a chief specialist of Jiangsu Provincial Food Safety Research Base of Jiangnan University, and Associate Professor Dian Zhu from the Business School at the Suzhou University.

“The objective assessment of food safety status in China provided in this book will help the world understand the real situation in China, as well as the efforts made by the Chinese government and all sectors of the society to improve food safety,” explains Baoguo Sun, Professor at Beijing Technology and Business University.

Presenting empirical findings and statistical data, this book provides an assessment of the actual state and future trends of the food safety risks in China.

With investigative research and an authoritative analysis of the subject, the book considers the complex issues that span the entire food supply chain system in China, and investigates the changing track of food safety in key stages, such as production, circulation, and consumption.

“Food safety in China has been the subject of numerous news reports from global media agencies for quite some time,” explains author, Linhai Wu. “This book will provide a comprehensive review of the efforts put forth by China to prevent food safety issues. This subject matter is of great importance to policymakers around the globe, as well as manufacturers that import and export goods to/from China.”
