CNCA Approval For Epicom

Posted by John Cunningham on November 04 2015 @ 09:00

In March 2015, Epicom applied to the Certification and Accreditation Administration of the Peoples Republic of China for approval to export milk powders to China.

This process involved working closely with the Department of Agriculture Fisheries and the Marine here in Ireland and interpretation of international legislation in line with local legislation. This was a detailed and comprehensive process which took almost 9 months to complete.

On the 4th November 2015 Epicom received the fantastic news that it had been added as an approved producer of milk powder products for export to China. Epicom has a long history of producing high value added retail milk powder products for Western Europe. CNCA approval now opens up exciting opportunities to work with Chinese partners to develop Irish retail products specifically for the growing Chinese market. This is a very important step in the ongoing development of our global business. We intend to use our vast knowledge of product development as well as our expertise in producing retail solutions to develop many routes to market in China. Our specific areas of interest will include retail packs for senior or adult nutrition, milk based nutrition for the general public, general health products and new category development. All products will be manufactured here in our Navan plant, in Ireland and will be produced to the very highest quality standards. We aim to work with the many co-operative milk producers on the island of Ireland to bring Irish milk powder, in its many forms, to consumers in China.
