Luosifen Legislation

Over the last year, there has been a huge rise in the number of companies offering instant luosifen (螺蛳粉 luó sī fěn), Liuzhou’s iconic snail noodle dish.

Personally, I don’t think they are a patch on the real thing, but they are proving popular with people who are away from Liuzhou and missing their fix. I know of several mamas sending them to their Liuzhou offspring studying away from home, whether they are elsewhere in China or in Europe or the USA.

Now, the government are getting involved. Liuzhou Food and Drug Administration has announced that mandatory standards are to be introduced in May 1st, 2016 regulating the production of pre-packaged luosifen. The standards are being issued now in order to allow companies to digest the details before the start date and take steps to meet the requirements. Following May 1st, law enforcement officers will carry out inspections and tests to ensure compliance.
