While I have lived in China for quite some time, their food and environmental issuses are the number one reason I don't want to go their again (which sucks considering I'm soon getting my masters degree in sinology, haha...)
Personally I don't trust any Chinese product, organic or not and would never buy it. One of my colleagues went to a Chinese organic rice farm (still used pesticides, just less...) and when the harvest wasn't enough they simply bought non-organic rice and sold it.
a manufacturer thought nothing of putting melomine in baby formula to make it appear to contain more protein than it did.
i have seen pictures of fish farms side by side with rice paddies that are heavily treated with pesticides and fertilizers.
i wouldn't chance it.
DOnt trust china! yeah. maybe you look for some positive news. INDIA is the this year BIO HERO. ITs supported and growth ower the past years. and now big in buisness and china wil follow. Organic buisness will be more strict and transperency in china. also it will be sometimes more fraudulent cause everything which get more popular in the pop society in modern lifestyle, has to be produced in large quanitities and so proof is difficult.
Bio fraudulant behave also occured in italy. where bio product were leballed organic and in reality it were non organic products. so it happens every where. go to allibaba the trading website search forsome organic produce. and maybe you get an idea how this all works. theres is still a big void to fill. and still a lot to do to get healthy products from china. PErfectly labeled and certified for the western sceptic customer. or the health conscious western customer.
still there is some good products already. and china is a big country.
I wouldn't trust it myself. But you're assuming that you would know... If I remember correctly, a gap in the country of origin labeling is "processing". If it's processed in the US, it can be labeled as coming from the US, even if all the components came from China. So they start getting enough bad press, losing money on it, poof, situation resolved by packaging in the US.
