LONDON, Nov. 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- On 1 July, 2016, the Regulations on Registration and Filing of Health Food came into effect, which may save time and expenses for enterprises when they apply for Health Food Approval Certificate.

The G20 Summit is to be held on 4 Sept., 2016 in Hangzhou City, Zhejiang Province. The government will impose stricter environmental regulations to make the air quality meet standards during the conference. Vitamin producers in surrounding areas, like Zhejiang NHU, Zhejiang Medicine and Yifan Xinfu, are required to suspend production for more than 10 days.

Northeast Pharmaceutical reported to turn losses into profits in its corrected H1 financial pre-announcement, due to the rises in sales prices of some APIs and sales volumes of some pharmaceutical preparations. However, the low price of its leading product, VC, may continue put it under heavy business pressure.
Garden Biochemical predicted its net profit to realize large growth, as its lanoline integrated use project has been put into production and the corresponding sales have started.
High production concentration and tight supply boost the market prices of vitamins, like VA, VB1, VB2, VB5 and VE.

This is likely to tighten China's supply of vitamins and push up corresponding market prices in the short run.
