Blog: Dean BestA sour episode in China

Dean Best | 21 August 2009

On our features pages today (21 August), we're carrying a piece on the apparent recovery of China's dairy sector after last year's melamine scandal.

We got the views of China's leading dairy processors, as well as commentators and dairy analysts in the country. It wasn't all plain sailing for our reporter in Beijing, mind.

Keen to find out how China's dairy companies are looking to promote their wares to shoppers, our reporter headed down to a nearby Wal-Mart store.

In the store, Chinese dairy Yili was using employees to encourage shoppers to sample their products.

The Yili reps were happy to pose for a quick snap (see below) - although, unfortunately, the Wal-Mart store management were less than happy and showed our man the door.

A typical, friendly, Chinese response to the media!
