The CNHFA Presided over the 2020 Two Sessions Food-themed Hall: A Discussion on Food Industry Opportunities and Challenges by the Members of the NPC and CPPCC and Industry Leaders

       On the evening of May 25, the 2020 Two Sessions Food-themed Hall was held in Beijing. The event was organized by the Economic Daily and co-organized by China Economic Net, Institute of Food Science and Technology, China Nutrition and Health Food Association, China Cuisine Association, and China Food Safety 30-person Forum. The Two Sessions Food-themed Hall is a food industry activity occurred annually during the Two Sessions. It has been successfully held for nine sessions since 2012. This year's event was chaired by Li Liangqiu, Executive Vice President of the CNHFA.

       At present, epidemic control and prevention has entered the second half phase. Thought the epidemic is contained domestically, it is still spreading around outside of China, which has posed a huge impact on the global economy and trade.

       At the same time, the emergence of the epidemic has changed consumers’ lifestyles and consumption habits. Their interest in health food has increased significantly and they are enthusiastic about new marketing forms such as online shopping and influencer marketing. On the other hands, our dining habits have changed dramatically as the government demands stricter and cleaner table manners. These changes have brought new opportunities and challenges to the development of the food industry.

       During the video conference, the participating guests shared their opinions and suggestions on the  challenges posed by the epidemic based on their own perspectives, with the topics including but not limited to: the Development of the Food Industry in the Special Period, Innovative Development of Nutritious and Healthy Food, Table Manner Civilization Construction and the Recovery of the Catering Industry, and Rational Consumption based on Food Safety Regulation and Science Popularization.
