SGS has issued the first accredited certificate in China under its FSMA FSVP scheme to Yantai Shuangta Food – China’s largest Longkou fan, pea starch and pea protein processing enterprise. Certification to the Foreign Supplier Verification Program (FSVP) serves as evidence of third-party verification of foreign facilities under the US Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA). Compliance with FSMA is a prerequisite for all suppliers and importers looking to market food products in the US.

Headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland, SGS provides inspection, verification, testing and certification services. The company has more than 97,000 employees and operates over 2,600 offices and laboratories worldwide, including India.

Congratulating Yantai Shuangta Food and its employees on this significant achievement, Hank Karayan, program director at SGS Global FSMA said, “FSMA FSVP certification sets a new milestone in global trade. It creates common ground for compliance with supplier verification requirements of US food imports, thus facilitating trade and ensuring the safety of food entering the US market.”

SGS has gained accreditation from the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) to certify the food safety systems of foreign facilities for the purposes of supply chain compliance verification under the FSMA FSVP rule. US food importers can now rely on SGS FSMA FSVP certification as evidence of the verification and compliance of their foreign suppliers.

Li Yulin, general manager at Yantai Shuangta Food said, “We are extremely proud to have led the way in gaining FSMA FSVP certification with SGS. The SGS team was very knowledgeable and rendered the certification process a positive experience for us. As a foreign supplier, achieving compliance with US food safety regulations will be transformative for our business, creating new opportunities to significantly expand our export activity.”

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
