On December, 2014, a strategic cooperation agreement was signed between Wageningen University & Research Centers and Renmin University of China. On February, 2015, Associate Professor Zhu Xiao of Center for Coordination and Innovation of Food Safety Governance and four students from Renmin Law School and School of Agricultural Economics and Rural Development went to Wageningen University & Research Centers for Winter Camp and Food Law Courses.


At the opening ceremony on February 9th, Professor Ralf Hartemink, director of the Food Safety Winter Camp, welcomed all the students from all over the world and pointed out that Food Law was exceedingly important for both legal and food technical workers. He also expressed his wishes that the Winter Camp would become a platform for people expert in different fields to have a good communication with each other.

During the five-day Winter Camp, experts of EU Food Law and food technology, including professors, DG SANTE worker and lawyers, introduced to students the present situation, key issues and new development relating to food and law. Differences among Food Laws in EU, America and China, halal food processing and eating taboos, food adulteration and many other issues were discussed. Besides lectures, students also took a practice course in which they made food labels according to EU standards and regulations.

During the following days, students also participated in lectures for Chinese Food and Agriculture Law given by lawyers of HIL Law Firm and Associate Professor Zhu Xiao of Renmin Law School.

The journey to Holland gave students a better understanding of the significance of interdisciplinary studies and communications, enhanced friendships among students from all over the world, and opened a new path for talent cultivation.
