I just came back from China and chatted with my Australian colleagues who are also working as media.
Regarding the continuous occurrence of food safety incidents in China, especially the miserable apology of the bosses of those offending companies on TV, Australian TV reporter KEVEN said: "McDonald's and KFC, these big brands, absolutely dare not be so rampant in Australia. Large-scale. The occurrence of food safety issues is definitely not a commercial accident, let alone “approval” with an apology or compensation. This is a major social crime that can shake the reproduction and development of a nation! If in Australia, the company would simply declare bankruptcy. The boss is directly imprisoned, and he is still screaming outside."
According to data provided by relevant Australian migration agencies, every domestic food safety incident will without exception trigger another wave of immigration, especially large foods such as melamine milk powder, Sudanese red duck eggs and other clenbuterol Security incidents, without exception. In the “Why One Migrate” survey conducted on new Chinese immigrants in Melbourne, children’s education and property safety have always been among the top two, but since the melamine milk powder incident, 70% of the respondents have listed food safety as The number one reason for wanting to immigrate!
Ms. Lucia, who came to Melbourne from Beijing, said that her family was not a corrupt official, but because of food safety, they immigrated to Australia. "When a person reaches middle age, who wants to leave his homeland relatives and friends to come to this strange place? No matter how good the environment is, it is not my own country. But whenever I think of my own children, I may eat so many famous and famous people at a young age. Unknown poisonous food, my heart is strained, and my husband and I are surrounded by so many unpreventable poisonous foods every day. We have to give up domestic opportunities and gritted our teeth and the whole family emigrated."
Coming all the way to Australia, is Australian food really safe? What aspects of Australian food are strictly controlled?
The person in charge of the Melbourne CLOSE retail department told reporters that the food here is basically safe, and harmful additives basically do not exceed the standard. This is mainly due to Australia's series of food safety guarantee systems. Take supermarkets as an example. Manufacturers supplying large supermarkets must have a supply qualification certificate certified by an internationally recognized audit company before they can supply supermarkets. Supermarkets here also have their own audit system. Although internationally recognized auditing companies will go to the manufacturers for regular audits, supermarkets will also go to the suppliers from time to time to check their operating procedures and sanitary conditions to ensure that the supplied food meets the standard requirements. At the same time, government departments will send inspectors to the supermarket from time to time to make unannounced visits, and will impose severe penalties on the supermarket if problems are found. In addition, there are strict regulations on the labels of supermarket foods here. Additives, shelf life, weight, allergens, etc. must be clearly marked. Substandard products should be recalled in time, and the recall is strong and the recall system is sound. These are what the country lacks.
The food hygiene inspector Jeffmey of Melbourne's Taste Hall Hotel told reporters that the restaurants here have their own food hygiene inspectors who have been strictly trained to monitor the purchase of food, the hygiene of the restaurant, the temperature of the dishes, the shelf life and other indicators. Some details of the restaurant also have detailed requirements, such as whether the facilities for hand-washing sinks, water temperature, hand sanitizer, and paper towels are complete, and whether there are animals that affect health such as cockroaches, rats, etc., to meet the standards required by the government. He said that although there have been several food poisoning incidents in Australia's history, they were not caused by human factors and the harm was not great.
ZERO, an old immigrant from the catering industry in Melbourne, revealed that although Australian food is not 7% safe, most businesses will take care of customers and pay attention to food hygiene in details. In addition, strict management and punishment are also important to ensure food safety. Measures. A few years ago, a well-known Chinese restaurant in Melbourne found cockroaches in the soup and was complained by customers. Later, the government food inspector found that the restaurant was selling unhygienic and substandard food to customers during the sanitation inspection of the restaurant. The restaurant was finally prosecuted and fined more than 7 Australian dollars and heavy fines for suspending business for rectification. ZERO said that this restaurant, because of the owner's strong family background, can be regarded as an absolute background in Melbourne. It is said that the owner is the former mayor of Melbourne, but the government is ruthlessly punished. If it is a weaker owner, just over XNUMX Australian dollars and closure of business for renovation will be enough to bankrupt him. This old friend of immigrants also reminded that many immigrants from mainland China did not have a strong sense of food safety when they set foot in supermarkets, restaurants and other catering industries, or did not have enough control over the hygiene standards of food here. He hopes to use the New Immigration News to warn the Chinese compatriots that in Australia where integrity is important, they must pay attention to food hygiene and safety, add more insurance to their business, and win more credibility for the Chinese.
It is understood that if you violate the food safety law in Australia, in addition to being subject to economic sanctions, you will also be recorded on the state government’s food safety law violation "blacklist". In severe cases, you will also be subject to criminal penalties. One punishment is enough Can't turn over for life.
