The Workshop was held on 23 March 2007 at the Hong Kong Polytechnic University. The morning session speaker was Ms. Wang Liping, Deputy Chief, Department of Nutrition, Food & Drug Administration of Guangdong Province, China. She spoke on the concept of food health, the present health food trend in China, and the regulations to regulate and register health foods. In the afternoon, Senior Officer of the Department of Nutrition, Mr. Ye Gaolong, walked us through the details of registration requirements quoting different real cases.
