"Chinatown"-Official media of Chinese Australians

Recently, the domestic "zombie meat" scandal has once again become the headline of Australian media! The huge and dazzling subject makes people can't bear to look straight. The captured Chinese meat smuggler sold frozen meat from around 1970. While expecting the law to severely punish these illegal traders, as an overseas Chinese media that always cares about the motherland, "Chinatown" specially edits here to introduce some of Australia's regulatory procedures, taking the breeding of a cow in Australia as an example, to provide domestic meat products Provide some reference and reference for safety-

In Australia, the whole process from raising livestock to selling meat productsEvery step at every location, All relatedAustralian laws and regulations or regulatory agencies to monitor it.

In addition, there are very reputable logistics companies that conduct research and investigations on the entire livestock market and provide standardized services to ensure the quality and food safety of beef and lamb.


We can see that in the feeding stage of farms and feedlots, there are production assurance regulations and quality assurance regulations to restrict the raising of livestock. In the transportation process, there are also special transportation guarantees to ensure the quality of the meat. At the same time, many departments have the right and obligation to supervise and inspect them during the processing. In terms of export, there are strict checks by the biosafety department.


It can be seen that in Australia, the entire meat products from breeding to slaughter to transportation to sale are all inspected and supervised by relevant departments.

Therefore, in Australia, it is difficult for people to eat meat of inferior quality, let alone zombie meat 30 or 40 years ago.

In China, in the zombie meat incident, ineffective supervision was the root cause. At this point, perhaps China can follow Australia’s example, in addition to government supervision, but alsoWe can encourage the development of credible and guaranteed logistics companies to provide guaranteed services.
