SYDNEY - [AAP] The A2 Milk Company (ASX: A2M) has had its application to continue selling its infant formula products in China approved by the Asian nation's regulatory body.

The mandatory application to the China Food and Drug Administration (CFDA) was submitted in May by formula manufacturer Synlait Milk (ASX: SM1), which has been in partnership with A2 Milk since 2010.

All manufacturers of infant formula must register brands and recipes with the CFDA in order to import products into China from January 1.

Synlait chief executive John Penno described the registration, which included product testing certification of manufacturing standards, formulation assessment and packaging changes, as another milestone in its long-term partnership with A2 Milk.

"Having successfully navigated the process, in conjunction with The A2 Milk Company, we are now in a stronger position for future applications of other Synlait customers," Mr Penno said.

Synlait and A2 Milk joined forces in 2010 to manufacture infant formula made from milk containing only the A2 beta-casein protein type and free from the A1 protein type.

In March, A2 Milk bought 8.2 per cent of Synlait, to "further strengthen the relationship between the two organisations".
