China issues five-year plan on food and drug safety

The plan outlines that by 2020 sample tests should cover all kinds of food, especially pesticides and veterinary drugs.

Over 300 national standards are planned to be set during the next five years. The standards will cover all consumer foods, agricultural products and pesticides. Domestic standards will be pushed to catch up with international levels of quality. Also, all standards will be open to the public online.

A comprehensive law system will be promoted based on food safety laws. Legislation on the protection of soil contamination and management of grain and fertilizer will speed up.

Contamination of agricultural products was a focal point. The use of highly-poisonous farm chemicals and veterinary drugs will be controlled.

The plan said that until 2020, 97 percent of agricultural products should meet quality standards.

Punishments will be strengthened on overuse of food additives, use of industrial ingredients in food, fake production and expiration dates, and exaggerated ads for healthy food.

Stricter supervision will be conducted on the production and sale of food, on new business models such as food e-commerce and online food-ordering, and on export and import.

Various social sectors are welcomed to join the food supervision. Consumers, employees of food companies will be encouraged to blow the whistle. Media outlets are also encouraged to cover food safety issues.
