Up to the end of June, 33,484 food business units have been insured in Zhejiang and insurance agencies have provided RMB13.51 billion for them as risk guarantee, covering every city and county in the province.
Food safety Liability insurance is one of the key programs in government-insurance cooperation. According to the situation in Zhejiang and the arrangement made by the State Council Food Safety Commission and Zhejiang provincial government, at the end of March in 2015, Zhejiang Provincial Food Safety Commission, Zhejiang Provincial Food and Drug Administration, Zhejiang Provincial Financial Office and Zhejiang Provincial Insurance Regulatory Bureau worked together to start the pilot work for food safety liability insurance.
It has been carried forward smoothly over the past two years, and the insurance has played a key role in improving food safety, increasing consumers’ confidence and eliminating potential food safety hazards. Reporters learned from the insurance regulatory authority that insurance institutes in the province will not only take responsibility for those insured units that are in trouble, but play their roles in preventing disasters and losses. For example, they will help food business units check hidden dangers and implement rectification measures so as to reduce production and operation risks.
