Shang­hai restau­rants to livestream their kitchens

Global Times – Metro Shanghai - - PULSE -

More than 2,000 restau­rants in Shang­hai have in­stalled a sur­veil­lance sys­tem which al­lows cus­tomers to watch how dishes are pre­pared and cooked on a tele­vi­sion screen.

Start­ing from June, Pudong New Area have had the city’s first 100 restau­rants signed up for the sys­tem, which is an up­grade from the tra­di­tional dis­play form of pre­par­ing food be­hind a win­dow for wait­ing cus­tomers.

Cus­tomers can watch the livestream­ing process while also re­ceiv­ing in­for­ma­tion about restau­rants’ em­ploy­ees, cer­tifi­cate and rat­ings is­sued by Shang­hai Food and Drug Ad­min­is­tra­tion.

The sys­tem also traces prod­uct sources and waste chains. Shang­hai plans to even­tu­ally in­stall the sys­tem in all medium- and large-sized restau­rants, as well as com­pany and gov­ern­ment din­ing halls and school cafe­te­rias within the next three years.

Cit­i­zens can also down­load an app to watch the video feed or to re­port food safety prob­lems.
