China to set food safety standardsAugust 13th, 2012 - 7:21 pm ICT by IANS
Beijing, Aug 13 (IANS) China will accelerate its pace to set up national standards of food safety, the China Daily reported Monday.
A senior official said China had formulated more than 2,000 national, 2,900 industry and 1,200 local standards related to food and additives.
“However, problems still exist in the present standards of food safety due to the restricted development of food industry and ability of risk assessment,” the official said.
The standards will be set up by the end of 2015, the daily said.
