Thanks to technological development, how food is produced has been improving to provide more diverse and innovative food, as is the case of novel food. Yet, technological innovation also introduces the risks and facilitates crime opportunities that threatens social security in general and food safety in particular. As a result, food crime has brought new challenges to food regulation due to its characteristics of cross-board transaction and technological complexity. Putting great endeavour to guarantee food safety, China has established a science based regulatory system to deal with novel food and reinforced criminal sanctions against food targeted crimes. The specialty of the case of China is to legally provide specific food crimes in criminal law and punitive damages in the case of civil liability. The experiences in this aspect may be interesting but also illustrative to regulate technological risk as well as food crimes at other regions or international level.
