Chinese dairy company Yili said it has spent about $15m (€11.6m) on importing melamine testing equipment from the US and Japan to restore confidence after the melamine scandal, according to the state news agency Xinhua.

It also sent 25 per cent of its staff to view privately run milk stations around the country.

Company executive Zhang Jianqui told journalists during a press visit to the firm’s processing and packaging facilities at Hohhot, central northern China that: “We hope you can see that we are very strict with our quality. Problems did occur with our products but that was a very limited few and we are doing everything we can to clean it up​.”

Meanwhile, dairy producers in central northern China are to receive 180m yuan (€20.4m) subsidies from the Inner Mongolian regional government to compensate them for plummeting sales, added the agency.
