China: The Food System-CANCELLED


The Program

China is the largest export destination for agricultural and food products from the United States. This course focuses on learning about the agricultural and food supply chain operations in China right from the production practices used in the fields to operations in various facilities where agricultural products are processed, imported, packed, tested, transported, inspected, traded and so forth. The visits may include a briefing with the U.S. Embassy Agricultural Attache as well as a meeting with representatives of Chinese food companies. Participants will have extended visits at cooperating universities to bring about an exploration of ideas and cross-cultural exchange.
