Dairy companies need to work with each other to build a mutually-beneficial international industrial chain, said Zhang Jianqiu, executive president of Yili Group, speaking at the Global Dairy Partnership Forum in Shanghai, on Nov 7.
Zhang was in the city to attend the China International Import Expo (CIIE) and he was keen to argue that the quality of dairy products could only improve through proper global cooperation.
The forum, organized by Hohhot Municipal Government, Inner Mongolia's commerce and husbandry organs, China Dairy Industry Association and the Dairy Association of China, aimed to deepen cooperation among dairy companies around the world.
The event saw the participation of nearly 400 representatives from government departments, academic and media circles, and renowned dairy companies.
Feng Yuzhen, mayor of Hohhot, said at the forum that through the sharing of resources, dairy companies could create a mutually-beneficial situation for dairy firms and consumers.
According to Feng, the government will provide firm support to leading dairy firms such as Yili to build high-quality production bases.
Yili is one of China's leading dairy companies and is seeking to achieve sustainable growth across the world, said Song Kungang, president of the Chinese National Committee of International Dairy Federation(IDF).
During the forum, Yili signed agreements with 32 companies, including the Switzerland-based quality control company SGS and the French quality inspection firm Bureau Veritas to enhance cooperation in research and quality control.
In addition, the company also released a White Paper on Breast Milk Research at the forum. The paper represents the latest achievements of Yili's research on breast milk conducted with global institutes.
According to the paper, nucleotide plays an important role in the physical growth of newborn babies.
