China Launches Food Safety Week
With a history of poor food safety, China’s new step for food safety is a great one. In the past eight years in China, the food industry has seen the traumatic food scares like cancer-causing turbot fish, melamine-tainted milk powder, cadmium-tainted rice, and clenbuterol-contaminated pork.
Since 2011, China has observed an annual event called Food Safety Publicity Week. With a different theme each year, 2014 has a focus on morality, law and regulations. With this movement, the Health Department has observed that consumers are turning to green and organic foods and young parents even go to the extent of buying milk formula for their infants from overseas.
Throughout the week, authorities in China wants to boost consumer confidence in the local food industry. Though there are many factors that can shift one’s confidence, China is doing its best to improve the public’s opinion with the food safety movement.
