Regarding the "double standard" of the alleged products, Haitian Flavor explained in the statement that the food regulations and standards of each country and region are not the same, and the corresponding product labels are also different.
One product for one country (region), one standard for both domestic and foreign food industries and even many other non-food industries.
With the diversification of consumer demand, both domestic customers and foreign dealers will often ask for customized products. Customized products will inevitably bring more and more product identifications, some of which are of different quality and some of which have different names.
Most of the internal control standards of Haitian products are higher or even much higher than the national standards. For products of the same quality, the internal control standards at home and abroad are the same.
"Using 'double standards' to provoke contradictions between consumers and Chinese brand enterprises will not only damage the consumer confidence of the Chinese people, but also affect the world reputation of 'Made in China'."
