Shang­hai restau­rants must source menu items

China Daily (Canada) - - NEWSCAPSULE -

Five res­tau­rant chains in Shang­hai — Yum! Brands, McDon­ald’s, Di­cos, Burger King and Carl’s Jr — have be­gun post­ing in­for­ma­tion about their food sup­pli­ers on their web­sites, a new re­quire­ment by the city.

The five were all in­volved in a food scandal that ex­posed Shang­hai Husi Food Co for us­ing ex­pired meat and forg­ing pro­duc­tion dates.

Since the scandal, the

five en­ter­prises have sus­pended us­ing Shang­hai Husi as a source.

Gu Zhen­hua, a food safety ex­pert and vice-pres­i­dent of the Shang­hai Mu­nic­i­pal Food and Drug Ad­min­is­tra­tion, said chain restau­rants are ob­li­gated to dis­close in­for­ma­tion on their sup­pli­ers.

“Con­sumers are pay­ing based on their trust in the brands. And brands need to make their foods trace­able,” said Gu. (Photo 1)
