201612/thats-year-review-logo-mini.pngFor many in the West, 2016 will be remembered for Trump, Brexit, terrorism in Europe and an absurd number of pop culture deaths, from Bowie to Muhammad Ali. By comparison, China had an unusually quiet year. Nonetheless, there were still a few goings-on in the world's most populous country. 

In our 2016 Year in Review series, we recap the best (and worst) of China's year in the worlds of technology, social media, sport, fashion, food, arts and more.


China frequently makes the headlines for some rather alarming food scandals, and 2016 was no exception. (See: rigged scales, expired milk, resealable booze bottles, fake beer, irradiated sea food... the list goes on). 

Below, our guide to which scandal falls where on our food safety hierarchies. (Click image to enlarge).
