French beef made its formal return to China after a 17-year ban as a batch of high-quality, free-range meat was flown directly to the tasting tables of the Shanghai International Import Expo.

China’s embargo on French beef dated back to 2001, after the mad-cow disease crisis hit Europe. Beef products from countries including the United Kingdom, Germany, Italy and Ireland were also barred.
