Safe Food for All Should be the Recipe – Liu Wei


From China Daily:

Production, sale and transportation are the stages where food products can be contaminated. Unfortunately, none of the three stages in China is free of problems, says CPPCC member Chen Zhizhe, of Fujian’s Xiehe Hospital.

There’s a high chance of food getting contaminated during processing or sale. Nearly 1 million factories, 70 percent of them small workshops with fewer than 10 employees, are in the processing business or sales today, says Chen Wanzhi. This has made a real big concern.

But even safe food can be contaminated during transportation, he warns. Among the 1,000 national safety benchmarks, only about 100 are on transportation. Poor packing and deficient logistics can make some food products rot while being transported.

How then can we resolve the issue? Almost all the NPC deputies and CPPCC members suggest revising the food safety law, which was implemented in 1995. [Full Text]
