McDonald's and Carrefour, two Fortune 500 companies, were again embroiled in food safety scandal, according to China Central Television in a broadcast marking the nation's annual Consumer Rights Day on March 15.

Honesty is the cornerstone of business success. These foreign companies are well known for strict quality standards and standardization in operations and management. Why do they always lose honesty when doing business in China?

Foreign companies in China scored 8.1 points in the 2010 Corporate Social Responsibility Index report released by the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, well below Chinese private enterprises' 13.9 points and state-owned enterprises' 28.9 points. This was in sharp contrast to their images as good corporate citizens in developed countries.
