On the morning of June 17th, Ningbo Municipal People’s Committee held a meeting for exchanges on food information traceability system covering farmland to circulation on the basis of a proposal on advancing food traceability system in Ningbo made by Tang Qianru, representative of Ningbo Municipal People’s Congress. Chen Yijun, member of the municipal standing committee, vice mayor of Ningbo and Wen Lumin, vice director of the municipal standing committee attended the meeting and delivered remarks.
The proposal is one of the priorities of the meeting organized by Ningbo Municipal Standing Committee in Ningbo, undertaken by Chen Yijun and supervised by Wen Lumin.
The food quality and safety traceability system aims to trace the source of food, where it goes and hold accountability when it comes to food production, distribution and consumption. The system introduces tougher measures on safety management and risk control in food circulation. Tang Qianru discovered that relevant departments lacks holistic planning despite the traceability system already in place in segmented management, industrial management and industrial development. On top of that, some work is repetitive and the sharing mechanism remains to be improved. It is suggested that relevant departments can harness synergy to build a unified food traceability sharing platform.
Organizers and sponsors in the field of market oversight, agriculture, forestry, fishery and business gave feedbacks from the society during the meeting. Ningbo assigns main responsibility for entities at the core of the system. As a result, major progress has been made in this regard. Going forward, relevant departments will heighten the awareness of delivering assigned responsibilities, improve quality and expand the scope, improve the traceability platform, raise the traceability rate. On such basis, Ningbo is set to explore an information island for integrating existing information and covering the system to all links of the food chain and put in place a unified traceability sharing platform. Ningbo is also on course to build the system of credibility that includes dishonesty so as to raise the cost of illegal enterprises and assign more importance of accountability.
Tang spoke highly of the result of the proposal.
