Iceland frozen Foods Conference 2012

Five Things You Might Not Know About Iceland

Ningbo has not broken the aftermath of "milk" incident, so that the "cold chain" is "the first time" into the public eye. Now, many people buy goods, especially food cold chain products, will focus on production date and shelf life, but few people know that "transportation, storage, sales" and other refrigerated link. This "cold chain" can not be missing, "chain", once broken, cold chain products not only from the "cold chain" effect, is also likely to cause food safety incidents. Reporter Wang Jia Dong Xiaofang transportation links and easy swap chain just bought frozen meat packaging intact, after thawing, but smell the slightest odor; directly from the refrigerated cabinet out of yogurt, drinking but diarrhea; open the packaging intact ice cream and found that condenses into a ball of ice and stick ...... these phenomena may be associated with the "cold chain is not cold" relevant. Recently, the reporter in the food business cold chain cold chain operations and product related survey found that cold chain products in the factory transportation and terminal sales multiple links prone to some problems. In the cold-chain transport links, reporter learned that, in cold storage and refrigerated trucks reality of higher operating costs, some companies "Return to Innocence" and even "opportunistic" ︰ have in common with a freezer truck in trouble for; has a "foam box wrapped in quilts "and" Lao Fazi "to achieve refrigeration effect; has switched off during transport refrigerator, boot again when approaching the destination. Plus cold chain transport market is facing price competition intensifies, disorderly competition and other issues, resulting in cold chain logistics constantly faced with the "missing link" risk. "From last December 29 date, snail, dumplings, milk and other 10 cold chain product orders, due to the transfer of temperature and found items do not meet requirements, a direct rejection." Ningbo, a large supermarket responsible person in charge said that the cold chain business . In the terminal sales cycle, the reporter found, refrigerated cold chain products, there are some problems with the display. In a small supermarket, the reporter found that some yogurt, milk was shelved in the freezer edge, blocking the return air, making the outlet, return air to form "artificial air curtain" was "ripped", milk products for the refrigerated Environmental cracks. Frozen meat is part of superimposed layers, height exceeds the freezer outlet, air diffuser. Reporters also saw some customers come from the freezer but ultimately did not buy frozen foods, although from time to time patrol staff and organize shelves, there is still no guarantee that "slip through" long-term exposure to room temperature. Aquatic products as rich in protein, from the "cold chain" for some time, more perishable, in some farmer's farms stalls, reporters found that some fish products are superimposed layers placed into warm air. "Hard constraint" missing is the main cause of the current food security needs cold chain, mainly dairy and beverage industry, cryogenic products, frozen food, ice cream and some vegetables, fruits, meat, aquatic products. "Regular operating procedures, these have special requirements for food during processing, are in the low state. Then, suppliers from the factory with a chilled, frozen cars will these foods shipped to supermarkets, stores, the supermarkets immediately classified storage, such as frozen food, ice cream, etc. into the temperature at minus 18 ℃ below the freezer, vegetables, fruits, milk and other products are placed in the temperature between 0 ℃ -4 ℃ cold storage. "" cold chain Food for temperature control in high demand, as long as a link appears 'loophole', such as products from the refrigerated truck during transport to the cold for too long, it may be buried security risk. "In addition to strengthening the supermarket, market and other terminal of the cold chain product preservation, the industry believes that the "missing link" root of the problem lies in cold chain logistics standards. At present, China cold chain logistics standards, mostly recommended standards, binding for small enterprises. Reporter online searching confirmed, GB / T 24617-2009 "frozen food logistics packaging, labeling, transport and storage" national standards, has grown from 1 March 2010 onwards. This standard clearly the food cold chain concept that food cold chain logistics is a low temperature state, in the production, packaging, transportation, storage, marketing and other aspects must always be kept cold. These processes need to have real-time temperature monitoring, and now the technology has already achieved real-time automatic monitoring. Insiders said that if the national mandatory standards that companies must comply, otherwise is not only illegal, or illegal. But now this "frozen food logistics packaging, labeling, transport and storage" national standards are recommendations, if an enterprise violates it, can not be punished. Level in laws and regulations, China's cold chain logistics laws and regulations are not sound standards, equipment and operating norms lack of uniform standards, information resources is difficult to achieve effective dumplings pick. Practitioners on cold chain logistics cold chain is not enough emphasis is the product chain "missing link" one of the reasons. Some companies and distributors do not even refrigerated trucks transport the cold chain products, a lot of people still stuck in the cold chain food "as long as no thawing is safe" mentality awareness stage, the objective adverse impact on consumers. Insiders call, there must be strict technical standards and norms guiding the cold chain industry, transport and storage, truly cold chain products, "seamless", so as to make the "cold chain food" worthy of the name, also put an end to food safety incidents. Cold chain link needs to be improved, according to incomplete statistics, since 1995, China's production of frozen food by 20% annually in recent years, even 35% of the speed increase, well above the global average growth rate of 9% . However, in the fresh food throughout the transportation process, China's consumption is about 20% -30%, in Europe and other countries, this loss is less than 2%. Depletion will eventually be added to the cost of food inside. Most countries approach is to reduce the loss of cold chain transport. However, at present only 10% of meat, 20% of aquatic products, a small amount of milk and soy products into the cold chain system, while Europe and the United States into the cold chain system for agricultural products compared to 85%. The industry believes that, in addition to accelerate standards development, solve development problems, but the moment has been plagued by high cost of cold chain logistics industry should be concerned about. Cold chain logistics service system is not only a problem of logistics and distribution industry, but also the livelihood, the government's guidance and support is critical. A cold chain transport enterprises engaged person in charge, if the state can tax and other preferential policies, it will raise the level of cold chain logistics play a positive role. Intensification of transport but also to reduce the cost of cold chain transport a good way. Reporters found that, if the logistics enterprises are well in advance and receiving time convention, corporate logistics company to set aside a specific time of receipt, not only can greatly facilitate the unloading, but also to ensure the cold chain is not out of line. In reality, many months old refrigerator is open desktop, which in a lot of people, not a closed one area seems to reduce the cost of building materials. But on the one hand, there is no fully enclosed vehicle docking cold storage and frozen frozen foods can lead to a full cold-chain transport, but improves the cold chain costs. In the Metro supermarket, the reporter found that in between cold and room temperature, they established an effective "buffer zone", not only to ensure the "seamless", but also reduces energy consumption. In the current cold chain logistics infrastructure capacity shortage situation, the industry suggested that encourages super food cold chain at the receiver, the first time for fast inspection to confirm safety before receiving, so you can define which aspects of a problem. Prone to problems in the summer, production companies can also deployed staff to the supermarkets, the field to help them to regulate storage, simultaneous sampling, promptly eliminate hidden dangers. As a "cold chain" last link consumers, at higher temperatures, such as when you want to buy frozen food need to be refrigerated, as far as possible and finally put in the shopping basket; purchase should avoid prolonged use of public transport. Small package as far as possible means that the drink, Bulk also need as soon as possible after opening sealed refrigeration. Some suggestions to consumers and remind them of "action" intolerable in the supermarket, we often see such a scene ︰ consumers buy finished frozen food freezers open after the departure, but forget the freezer door pull; optional Fresh food does not want it, they readily put other non-refrigerated freezer shelves and so on. As everyone knows, this kind of "action" will result in fresh food cold chain disjointed. Freezers have automatic control setting function of temperature, set temperature is reached the compressor automatically shut down. If the cover is not good, not only will cause the compressor has started to increase power consumption, long high-load burn easily, such as failure, but also likely causing the temperature drop slowly, store food may be due to rise in temperature metamorphism. And the fresh food readily placed in other non-refrigerated freezer shelves, is the direct result of its out of the cold chain environment. Insiders told reporters, strictly speaking, as long as from the freezer, refrigerated environment for 20 minutes, even if it is out of the cold chain, so that fresh food will not be eaten. Therefore reminded the public in the shopping process, we should readily pull fridge, freezer door, do not let it open; better not to do fresh food free throw home, it should be back in place. In addition, it is best to buy fresh food can be the last to minimize out of refrigeration, freezing environment of the time. There are also some people prefer to buy fresh foods "turn" underclass, and feel its effect refrigerated or frozen, this is understandable. But everyone knows freezer functioning without return air, once the return air is blocked, the temperature of the entire container will be affected. A Supermarket Department official told reporters, in general, return air is very easy to see, at the top and bottom shelves vertical edges, bedroom sliding door freezer at the bottom. Therefore, consumers turning fresh food, do not block the return air to prevent poor ventilation cause the temperature to rise. Home refrigerator freezing fresh seafood is best eaten within a month, the most afraid to buy anti-freeze foods. If after repeated freeze-thaw frozen food frozen again, not only for the quality and taste of the food itself seriously affected, for the health of consumers has had some effect. So, how to identify? Auchan supermarket Qinglin Bay shop staff told reporters, with meat, for example, especially common in the supermarket frozen chicken wings, chicken, etc., if the color is white, it is normal for the detachment of the cold chain; And if the color dark red or close to the flesh, it is likely that anti-freeze and then out of the cold chain. For frozen dumplings, wonton, etc., once out of the cold chain links, the more prone to swelling saturation situation, even if the re-frozen, it will not be changed. And and frozen buns, bread, like this kind of frozen food once out of the cold chain links, it is easy to stick together, so when choosing to stick together if there are circumstances, is likely to be anti-freeze before. "There are some common mistakes in life habits, and I want to be a reminder for consumers." The staff member said, many people have bought the meat at home, thinking about short-lived fad do not eat, they put their fridge freezer, in fact, this is the wrong approach, "Take pork, in the 0-4 ℃ under the conditions of 72 hours may be fresh, but once it was put into freezers, after freezing and thawing process, the bacteria will thousands tens of thousands of breeding. fish at 0-4 ℃ conditions, bacterial growth is very slow, of course, the real long-term non-perishable seafood to ensure the temperature is much lower than the refrigerator to provide a minimum temperature of minus 20 degrees Celsius, so after the release of the public to buy fresh into the refrigerator is best eaten within a month. "(Dong Xiaofang Wang Jia) manage cold chain collision point demand" top design "so-called cold chain, simply put, is to control the temperature of the supply chain. A complete "cold chain" is a series not to be interrupted warehousing and distribution channels, and in the process has always maintained a temperature standards. It is used to maintain or extend the shelf life of related products, such as agricultural products, seafood, frozen food, medicines and so on. Food cold chain from "farm of origin or ingredients supplier, has been extended to the consumer's table." How to manage this "chain"? New Canadian Sui Wah Food International, Jerry gives us a new perspective. "Domestic regulation, often an afterthought resolve type." Jerry respect, however, the production of food taken to reflect the quality of food sampling is not necessarily comprehensive. "In fact, compared to the results, the process is more important, if the process every step of regulation, can be traced back, can query, then the results of the security is 'ripe' it." It is this philosophy, promote the current international mutual recognition and acceptance of the HACCP food safety assurance system was born, improvement and application. HACCP is likely to occur in the food processing sectors in hazard assessment, and then take control of a preventive food safety control system. Unlike traditional quality control methods, HACCP is a raw material, the production process of various factors that affect product safety were analyzed to determine the key processing, establish and improve monitoring procedures and monitoring standards, to take effective corrective measures The hazard prevention, elimination or reduction to acceptable levels of consumers, to ensure that food processors can provide consumers with safer food. Currently HACCP countries promote the use of better ︰ Canada, Thailand, Vietnam, India, Australia, New Zealand, Iceland, Denmark, Brazil and other countries, most of these countries is mandatory to implement using HACCP. Areas to carry out HACCP system include - drinking milk, butter, fermented milk, lactic acid bacteria drinks, cheese, ice cream, raw noodles, tofu, fish, ham, fried meat, egg products, salads category, dehydrated vegetables, spices, mayonnaise, lunch , frozen shrimp, canned food, beef, food, cakes, soft drinks, sausages, mechanically separated meat, salt, dried meat, frozen vegetables, honey, high-acid foods, meat and poultry, fruit juices, vegetable juices, animal feed. U.S. Food and Drug Administration statistics show that in aquatic products processing enterprises, the implementation of HACCP system implementation of enterprise business than not reduce the probability of contamination of food by 20% to 60%. "'Cold chain' aspects of food safety supervision system, that is, on this basis, developed." Jerry said that in Canada, the "cold chain" is a professional firm to do the thing. Large cold storage and cold chain logistics, the country on several of their equipment investment is high, take the threshold of such a license is also high. "These companies are subject to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency's strict supervision once an accident, serious cases directly out of business, no business dared to take the risk." Of course, the foreign birth of these food safety initiatives and applications has also undergone a process. With HACCP, for example, from the creation to the application, gone through 30 years. Chinese food cold chain safety construction, also need time and space to grow. It is gratifying that this issue has received attention. Development and Reform Commission, Ministry of Commerce, under the impetus of the last two years the domestic cold chain development into an unprecedented climax period, high specification throughout cold storage building in the domestic cold chain hardware construction has been greatly improved. Commerce Department also introduced policies to support the establishment of a number of cities around the fresh logistics distribution center, complete cold chain logistics support measures to enhance the delivery and processing capabilities, but also encourage the development of third-party cold chain logistics enterprises. June 29, 2012, the "cold chain logistics Classification and basic requirements of" national standards officially released, marking China's cold chain food industry will enter a new stage of development. (Wang Jia Dong Xiaofang) news background large supermarkets "cold chain" Been doing Metro supermarket shopping public, the temperature of the supermarket may have left a deep impression. "On Thursday, the day was very hot, I changed a spring, buy milk in the Metro That buy zone temperature 0-5 ℃, cold, a take on the milk, I came out." One who lives in East Lake Gardens Ms Chan said. "Our vegetables, fruits, milk, meat, fish and other fresh products, in addition to freezer to protect its fresh quality, the entire three-dimensional space to maintain the optimum temperature suitable for refrigeration. Fruits and vegetables, fish products regional perennial 12-14 ℃, milk, meat Regional perennial 0-4 ℃. "Metro Supermarket relevant responsible person said, and, every two hours a day, they will check again, and recorded in the checklist on the temperature, the competent weekly inspection and signature. To ensure the "cold chain" constantly, from product loading, Metro distribution center is equipped with refrigerated trucks each logger began to work along the way, the vehicle automatically recorded every 10 minutes the temperature. "The temperature record derived using a computer, you can visually see the vehicle transport temperature changes that help us to control and manage the cold chain." The official said, to be refrigerated trucks to reach the supermarket, fresh products to the specified category, "then split mouth ", for" seamless. " Special delivery platform in fruits and vegetables, the reporter saw the connection point to the freezer goods under a channel is closed, the temperature at 10 degrees Celsius. "This way, constantly cold chain, food freshness is ensured." Coincidence. Shang Qinglin Bay stores in Europe, 9 am, supermarket employees being recorded temperature of the freezer, "If any abnormalities, the headquarters will be sent to the monitoring center warning information, we immediately give detection overhaul." Cold chain supermarket responsible person in charge of the business, said, Moreover, receipt, they will pronged approach, with a needle thermometer, infrared thermometer, test the surface of the cold chain as well as the internal temperature of food, once exceeded, immediately rejected. To avoid "last meter" debacle, some large supermarkets also provide customers with a cold chain solutions, selling a cooler bag, cooler box and ice. (Wang Jia Dong Xiaofang) Tips cold chain and life are closely related Mike after graduating from college this year in July, workers began to stay in Haishu independent living for months to buy food this little thing he touched a lot, usually get up early to buy fresh vegetables to delay the work, but after work to buy back the food, freshness always make him somewhat difficult satisfied. As people's living standards improve, people increasingly pay attention to the preservation of the quality of fresh produce, and many people do not realize, in vegetables, meat and seafood and other fresh agricultural products circulation, play a decisive role on the freshness of the cold chain logistics. Cold chain logistics, that is, refers to refrigerated and frozen foods from the production, storage, transportation, sales to the consumer prior to each session, always in a predetermined low temperature environment, in order to ensure food quality and reduce food losses a systems engineering. It is with the advancement of science and technology, refrigeration technology development and set up, based on freezing technology-based, low-temperature refrigeration technology as a means of logistic processes. (Wang Jia Dong Xiaofang) Other Mountains Shanghai local standard cold chain management pioneered October 1, 2007, Shanghai launched the first nationwide local food cold chain logistics industry standard --- "Food cold chain logistics technology and management practices", This standard specifies the food cold chain processes, refrigerated transport, refrigerated storage, wholesale trade, distribution, processing and marketing terminals circulation temperature control, quality health management requirements, standardized management of the cold chain is the technical basis. Shanghai Food Cold Chain Logistics standard is mainly reflected in the technical and management aspects, from the technical to the cold chain logistics company providing a recommended temperature, cover meat, ice cream, vegetables and other categories, or clear and specific product temperature. Management, cold chain logistics is mainly done defining the scope of the current range set at the main supplier of the (factory), warehouses, cold chain vehicles, distribution centers to the sales outlets (eg supermarkets) temperature between docking. The standard reference to the practice of the developed countries, combined with the actual situation of our cold chain operation, not only all aspects of clear indicators of temperature control, also increased the quality and hygiene management requirements, so that stronger operability standards. For example standard, liquid milk (drink) "Car body temperature before loading precooled to 15 ℃, before loading; transportation product temperature not higher than 10 ℃". "Cold chain distribution business delivery units commissioned carrier, the carrier distribution in the contract, the goods must be clear temperature requirements." "Frozen, refrigerated food out of the library or reach the recipient, the frozen products should be less than 15 minutes, refrigerated products within 30 minutes loading is completed, the goods prohibited under prolonged exposure to room temperature, to prevent the melting temperature of the cargo pick-up" and so on. Hangzhou, the introduction of cold chain logistics service specification in January 2012, Hangzhou Quality Supervision Bureau released the 26 service standards, one of the "cold chain logistics service standards" of the current cold chain logistics and distribution made very detailed provisions. Requirements frozen foods should be maintained during transport throughout balanced refrigeration, refrigerated goods in transit car body temperature should be kept below -18 ℃, transportation allowing warming to no more than 3 ℃, and soon after fell in handling below -18 ℃. "Cold chain logistics service standards" provisions should be strictly controlled during transport envelope and record the internal temperature at the end of each transport operation, the temperature should be recorded as a write to the transport document or documents submitted to the relevant party accessories. Carrier transport temperature records should be kept for 2 years or more. Loading and unloading of goods will be done when the temperature detection. Chilled, frozen goods shall discharge time requirements, should ensure that during unloading goods temperature controlled within the allowable range. Unloading operation is interrupted, should immediately close the door envelope transport equipment, refrigeration system to maintain normal functioning. Specifications for goods stored in cold storage stacking also made provision requiring cold storage stacking goods should be kept away from the wall 0.3 m from the top 0.2-0.6 m, 0.3 m away from the exhaust pipe from the air duct 0 .3 meters to ensure that cold air circulation, air circulation requirements; cold storage temperature and relative humidity should be refrigerated items to meet different requirements and maintain stability, storage temperature fluctuations should be within ± 2 ℃. Freezer temperature should reach below -18 ℃, when the goods out of the cold storage temperature fluctuations controlled at ± 2 ℃ such as inside. Guangdong Foshan Nanhai order to compensate for the implementation of the uniform distribution of meat distribution sectors loopholes and enhance regulatory front, in July 2012, Foshan Nanhai introduced the "Nanhai meat unified distribution program, " the first to start in the city cold chain uniform distribution. This new safety regulatory mechanism to allow meat from slaughter to butcher chopping board during this transport links, to achieve a fully enclosed regulation, giving consumers added a "rest assured that lock." Cold chain car is not only temperature control, real-time monitoring, GPS positioning system also ensures that no meat during transport "trick." It is understood, GPS systems pre-set vehicle transportation routes, and the installation of cameras in the car, if the vehicle unreasonably deviated fixed route monitoring party will be recorded if the container door halfway open photographic instrument automatically turns recording function, even truck only to the Designated Market before you can open the doors of the container. People look for the "cold chain distribution" brand, market sales have been rising. (Dong Xiaofang Wang Jia) experts suggest how to make a chain of cold chain is not out of line reporter Dong Xiaofang Wang Jia fresh each product has its optimum preservation temperature, for example, milk is 2-6 ℃, fruits and vegetables is 10-15 ℃ , frozen foods such as minus 18 ℃. These temperature requirements for special products, cold chain and interlocking is vital. However, the reality in the various unsatisfactory, but also to feel worried about the people on the Ningbo. How to ensure fresh products cold chain link is not out of line? Insiders suggest perhaps worth considering. Awareness is the key last Friday, in a small supermarket receipt of the mouth, the reporter saw this scene ︰ nine boxes of frozen dumplings and noodles, ham and other people, from an ordinary small truck was handed down. Reporter pretending to consult so dumplings will not thaw, the staff replied, while buried tally side "will not order a few boxes of frozen dumplings specifically looking for cars car right?" And under the "Food Safety Law" stipulates that "the storage, transport and handling of food containers, tools and equipment should be safe, harmless and kept clean to prevent food contamination, and meet the required temperature to ensure food safety and other special requirements. "" There is no cold chain transportation, vegetable water will evaporate and become shriveled, hair yellow; meat if it is at a temperature of 20 degrees or so, Staphylococcus aureus can easily multiply. while frozen food during transport if already thawed naturally, to the store and then anti-freeze, even after thawing again sold to customers as a cooling food such as chicken wings on a similar situation occurs frequently, making it difficult to ensure food safety. "industry sources, not just in Ningbo, the vast majority of cities across the country from the transport to the sale of part of the cold chain can not be done seamlessly. Reporters learned that restrict the development of improved cold chain, cold chain logistics coverage ratio of fresh produce low primary reason is cost. There are operators to reporters calculations ︰ refrigerated truck price is about 30-40 yuan / vehicle, as a general 2-3 times the price of the vehicle; cold chain transport first by oil, gasoline and other prices, cost pressures also great. Only gas, toll, as well as transport of perishable goods in the three losses during the economic cost of this conversion, the share of the transport of perishable food for more than half the total cost. Undoubtedly, this is the cost to the product to increase the maximum pressure and source, so in view of its high cost, the market inevitably there have been various irregularities. In fact, everyone should be aware ︰ long run, the cold chain improvement, beneficial for everyone. For operators, cold chain logistics is imperfect, first brought the big problem is the loss. With fresh produce, for example, some attrition rate of 20% -30%. Should the use of standard cold-chain transport vehicles, the loss rate will drop substantially. To the general public, it is able to enjoy more fresh, nutritious fresh produce better preservation. Fresh produce during transport derived from individual food safety incidents, in cold chain logistics building a sound, you can effectively avoid. Improve the cold chain can also promote inter-season sales of agricultural products, and promote stable income farmers, types of fruits and vegetables rich in people's daily lives. The blind pursuit of low-cost distribution, not to a high standard to ensure food cold chain distribution all the way to collar "fresh", both easy to increase the loss, the breeding of food safety incidents, but also easily lead to market logistics and distribution tariffs illegal practices, creating a vicious cycle . Of course, the lower part of the cold chain transportation costs, the need for government support and subsidies. At the same time, companies can also Baotuan attack, establish long-term logistics partners, etc. to minimize transportation costs. Improve legislation is simply part of the reason why the cold chain loopholes, simply because the relevant laws and regulations are not perfect. According to insiders, at present China is not specifically for cold chain links of laws and regulations, some provisions are only found in scattered other relevant laws and regulations. Chinese food logistics industry has entered a golden period of development, and standardization of the food cold chain logistics are seriously lagging behind, thus enhancing the cold chain management fundamental thing is to legislative norms. First, in terms of technical standards, involving refrigerated, frozen food transport There are hundreds of products, each product the required temperature conditions and other technical indicators are not the same. But such a systematic refinement of technical standards and operational standards of cold chain operations, cold ambient temperature and refrigerated transport temperature control standards, have not been introduced. Secondly, from the operability of supportive policies, the past few years there has been the development of cold chain logistics emphasis, for example, once in late 2004 when the State Council "on further strengthening the rural work to improve agricultural comprehensive production capacity of a number of policy advice "and stressed the need to accelerate the construction of the cold chain and cold storage and transportation of agricultural products mainly cold chain system. However, these macroscopic formulation, but the lack of specific policies or measures to match, resulting in their not very well be implemented. Of course, you should also establish a strict supervision of censorship and punishment system. If the transport process control, the need to establish relevant personnel on a regular basis, wherever the supervision and inspection system, improve the cold chain from the factory to the consumer every aspect of the inspection to ensure the food safety of fresh food. Fresh produce cold chain cold chain monitoring is everyone's responsibility, is fishing from the place of origin or later, in product processing, storage, transportation, distribution and retail, until the hands of consumers, all aspects of their products is always in an environment where temperatures are necessary in order to ensure food quality and safety, reduce losses, pollution prevention special supply chain system. By the freezing process, frozen storage, refrigerated transport and distribution, refrigeration sales constituted four aspects. Therefore, to ensure the cold chain is not out of line, not one's duty. Municipal Quality Supervision Bureau from the source, the city's more than 1, 300 food producers and related products before issuing companies in the review, they first requested the LEG to have the refrigeration, freezing cold chain audit requirements of the enterprise. "Production of products according to the regulations need to set cold storage, it must be established, if not set, is not distributed to the relevant 'production license'." Quality supervision departments have also stepped up their routine inspections, from time to time conduct surprise checks on the production enterprises, if found no use of cold storage, immediately ordered rectification, fresh from the production source to ensure product safety. Last week, the reporter learned from the Municipal Industrial and Commercial Bureau, in 2011, the business sector on the configuration of the 184 hand-held infrared thermometer, first in the province to achieve super cold chain food inspection supervision, specifically for shopping malls, supermarkets, cold chain controlled environments inspection equipment and facilities that do not meet the requirements, payment shall be ordered to correct the book, there are 203 supermarkets cold chain equipment and facilities to improve and perfect. Meanwhile, the City of Industry is also required to set the temperature display device via the Pro Paul food tips, and subsequent treatment records, etc., urging the operators subject discipline. In addition, agriculture, marine fisheries, food and medicine and other departments have also introduced a number of initiatives to strengthen the supervision on fresh products. Of course, cold chain monitoring, the most important thing is to rely on their self-discipline. "Any regulatory authorities by the manpower, resources are limited, it is impossible 24 hours staring at, it is impossible to have never been fixed batch production to sales, the most critical, or rely on corporate self-discipline. Raise awareness of food safety business up, naturally there will be other issues, such as cold-chain vulnerabilities exist. "Recently, Sanjiang supermarkets throughout Yongcheng introduction of the relevant provisions to protect the safety of fresh produce. "First, to strengthen on-site inspections, the temperature record, and all refrigerated and frozen foods first inspection, ensure that the first time into the cold chain equipment; Second, strengthen the cold chain equipment, rehabilitation and upgrading of the urban area has 24 stores right Cold island stamped, cold cabinet currently has a shopping mall is a pilot plus sliding door, where practicable will be gradually extended.

Nestle to buy McCartney Frozen Foods

Devotees of ethical consumerism were dismayed when The Body Shop was sold last month to a company part-owned by Nestlé.
They may now have further food for thought following reports that the company set up by the vegetarian trailblazer Linda McCartney is also about to be swallowed up by the Swiss food giant, which is named today among a top 10 of "unethical" multinational companies.
