Improving Food Safety, One Event at a Time

"Food is essential, and safety should be a top priority. Food safety is closely related to people's lives and health, economic development and social harmony. We must create a food safety system of self-disciplined food companies with integrity, effective government supervision and broad public support to improve overall food safety."

Premier Li Keqiang
Head of the National Food Safety Commission, State Council, P.R.C
