Fourteen provincial authorities of market supervision, police, education, agriculture, rural affairs and others have made progress in a joint operation targeting counterfeiters and illegal food. The three-month-long operation started in September. By late October, nearly 3,800 infringing businesses were investigated. Ninety five of them were ordered to suspend operations and 121 shutdown across Hunan province. On Oct 25, 80 metric tons of counterfeit food products worth 1.5 million yuan ($214,000) in potential sales were destroyed in Changsha, capital of Hunan.
