2018-04-04 09:54:41

This province advocates the practice of qualification of raw material procurement, live processing in the kitchen, and more authoritative recommendation by businesses in the catering industry. Recently, the reporter learned from the “Net Clearance Action” news briefing at the Provincial Food and Drug Administration that in 2017, the province had banned 2148 unlicensed restaurants. During this operation, food and drug administrations at all levels interviewed 42 online third-party meal ordering platforms and 4,445 persons in charge of the catering units providing network service, investigated and punished 8 online third-party food platforms, and received 1.171 million yuan in the form of fines and accrued assets.
Apart from the rigorous investigation, a new model of online meal ordering supervision will soon be promoted throughout the province. Our province will put the initiative of the "Sunshine Kitchen" taking the lead in the nation onto the takeout platform, by using the video link to give a real-time display of the restaurants’ operation to the consumers to provide consumers with an intuitive experience of ordering meals and to experience the “visible security of online ordering". The takeout platform will give top search encouragement to the stores that join the "Sunshine Kitchen" video link initiative.
With the rapid expansion of the business of the online meal ordering industry, the entire chain of food safety from the sources to the consumers has been imminent. Wang Lifang, director of Catering Service Supervision Department of the Provincial Food and Drug Administration, introduced that, at present, the regulatory authorities have found out the “minimum” number of online meal ordering companies through the integration of online and offline surveys and the food licensing database. There are nearly 170,000 online meal ordering service units in the province, and the number of third-party online ordering platforms decreased from 16 last year to 8 this year, including three platforms out of this province and five regional platforms in this province. In addition, the rate of licensing the catering units providing online service has increased from 70% to more than 93%, and the publicity rate of licenses for these catering units has also increased from 60% to over 90%.
The Provincial Food and Drug Administration will set unified standards for online meal ordering from admission to the internet to raw material purchase and distribution. On the basis of this, we will also increase the number of offline checks and unannounced visits on the spot in response to the characteristics of the large number of small and medium sized catering companies and their dynamics. This year, the sample rate in the province will not be less than 5%.
