Does “The State Council Party and State Organizations Special Food Supply Center” Really Exist?

The following quotes from Wen Jiabao, together with a denial from the official media about the State Council Party and State Organizations Special Food Supply Center is spreading through the Chinese Internet.

“A government which is the flesh and blood of the people, has no privileges except responsibility, service, dedication and cleanness.

“一个同人民有血肉联系的政府,除了责任、服务、献身和廉洁,没有其它特权。”

- Wen Jiabao’s speech at the United Nations headquarters in New York, September 24, 2008.

“The Activity Center of Elder Officials of the State Council has no such agency called ‘The State Council Party and State Organizations Special Food Supply Center,’ it has never held ‘certificate ceremonies,’ nor does it have a person named ‘Zhu Yonglan.’ Any related online information is purely rumors.”

– A anonymous spokesperson of the The Activity Center of Elder Officials of the State Council, from the official China News Agency, September 25, 2008.

However, netizens continue to dig out search engine cache pages from an already deleted website of the The State Council Party and State Organizations Special Food Supply Center. It has many more photos and text, including the following introduction, translated by CDT.
