Food for special medical purposes (FSMP) can provide the best and most economical nutritional support for the treatment and recovery of people with special medical needs. FSMP enhances people’s quality of life by catering to their individual needs, cutting treatment costs and supporting healthier ways of living.

The European Chamber's Food for Special Medical Purposes Sub-working Group was established in 2016 and counts four leading international manufacturers as members that specialise in special nutrition. Members of this sub-working group have charted outstanding performance in China's FSMP market and are committed to FSMP industry growth in China.

The European Chamber's Paediatric Nutrition Sub-working Group was established in 2009, and currently has eight international companies as members and four domestic manufacturers as local partners. Members and partners of the sub-working group include major manufacturers of infant and young children milk-based powder formula (infant formula) who are active in China, and their expertise in the infant formula sector is widely recognised by Chinese consumers. They are known for providing high-quality paediatric nutrition products that meet consumer needs. Members have also significantly contributed to the development of the paediatric nutrition industry in China. The sub-working group believes that breast milk is the best food for infants and wants to offer its support in educating both health workers and the general public on the benefits of breast milk.

The Food for Special Medical Purposes Sub-working Group and the Paediatric Nutrition Sub-working Group believe that it is crucial to regulate the special food sector with modern legislation and modern standards, based on scientific evidence and input from both industry and the public at large. Both sub-working groups strive to promote dialogue and communication among all relevant stakeholders, including with industry associations and regulators. The sub-working groups are both committed to contributing to a better quality of life in China, and to ensuring that the whole special food industry is safe, healthy and sustainable.
