Food Safety Goes High-Tech

LOCAL food authorities will adopt advanced technologies like radio-frequency labels, instant bacteria testing machines and a real-time temperature monitoring system to ensure food safety for the millions coming to the 2010 Shanghai World Expo.

The RFID technology, or radio frequency identification, will be deployed across the entire Expo food supply chain, from the source and manufacture of raw food to storage, picking and packaging, and on to distribution and the serving of customers.

All food-delivery vehicles and food containers will be tagged with RFID labels for automatic check-in at entrances and food enterprises inside the Expo site, officials from the Shanghai Food and Drug Administration told a food-safety forum yesterday.

The Expo will also adopt a rapid testing system for food processing, checking high-risk foods and investigating questionable incidents.
