Though industry associations have many functions, the Sanlu incident made it clear how self-regulation is among the most crucial of its functions. Over the course of this case study we ﬁnd that although industry associations have existed at each link of the production and marketing process for dairy products, a holistic, func- tional failure at self-regulation contributed greatly to the whole dairy industry’s loss of public accountability. In order to guarantee the well being of the dairy, food, and even manufacturing industries, they will need to establish a supervisory system combining both governmental super- vision and industry self-regulation.
