Measuring equipment is a heavy responsibility for food safety !

The country is based on the people, the people are eating for the sky, and the food is safe. With the continuous advancement of reform and opening up, the living standards of our people have been continuously improved, and the security on the tongue has become a topic of national concern. To this end, the government attaches great importance to food sampling operations and pays close attention to people's food safety.

In 2017, China has revised 10 laws and regulations such as the Food Safety Law and formulated more than 20 food safety department regulations. Relevant departments cleaned up 5,000 food standards, integrated 400 items, and released 926 new national food safety standards. Improve more than 2,500 industry standards and more than 7,000 local and enterprise standards, and announce 176 new national food safety standards.



In addition to formulating and revising a number of standards that are advancing with the times, in the National Outline of Medium- and Long-Term Science and Technology Development Plan (2006-2020) issued by the state, it is clearly stated that the role of scientific instruments and equipment should be emphasized.


The chemical analysis instrument can detect the moisture, salt content, sugar content, protein content, fat content, fiber content, acidity, etc. in the food, and the fluorometer can detect the vitamins A and E in the food; the spectrometer can Monitoring of microorganisms, additives, harmful elements, pesticide residues, veterinary drug residues, toxins, etc. These instruments and instruments together guard people's food safety.


In order to carry out food measuring work better, more and more regions have strengthened food measuring in all aspects of life by building large-scale food safety measuring centers, quick inspection rooms in vegetable markets, and mobile measuring vehicles. For example, in Jiangyin City, in addition to the use of measuring instruments to carry out a special sampling of nearly 600 batches, the relevant departments also through the construction of food rapid inspection vehicles and 48 food inspection rooms, to achieve full coverage of food safety rapid detection in the farmer's market.


At the same time, in order to improve the detection efficiency and accuracy, a number of scientific research institutions are constantly conducting research and development. Among them, the advanced detection technology developed by Shanghai has been put into actual combat in the field of rapid food measuring in Shanghai. At present, it can quickly detect more than 10 kinds of common pesticides such as carbofuran, chlorothalonil and paraquat.



It is precisely because of people's attention to food safety that measuring instruments have achieved rapid development. In 2017, the scale of China's food safety measuring industry reached 57.15 billion yuan, an increase of 22.01% compared with 46.84 billion yuan in 2016. These fast-growing instruments continue to be invested in food measuring in more fields.


The rapid development of measuring instruments and meters can make people eat a "reassuring". According to statistics, in 2017, the overall pass rate of China's food quality and safety supervision sampling inspection was 97.6%, an increase of 0.8 percentage points over 2016. The overall sampling pass rate of edible agricultural products was 97.8%, an increase of 0.3 percentage points over 2016. In general, China's food safety industry is still developing in an orderly manner.


However, it should be noted that according to the statistical data results, the prevention of food safety issues can not be taken lightly, and there is still a lot of room for measuring instruments. In 2017, the number of food safety incidents in the country reached 19,603. Although it has been reduced a lot compared with the past, it still poses great harm to people's health. According to the "Report", in addition to the progress made in China's food safety industry, there are also many hard-hit areas, which are the key points for the food safety measuring industry to pay special attention to.


In the past three years, in many food industries, the pass rate of supervision and sampling of four types of foods such as convenience foods, catering foods, edible oils and oils and their products, and edible agricultural products has been decreasing year by year. In food safety incidents, microbial contamination problems, over-range and over-limit use of food additives, quality indicators do not meet the standards and pesticide veterinary drug residues frequently occur, the proportion of unqualified samples has increased a lot.



In addition, as of 2017, there are 42,577 food production enterprises above designated size in China, and the number of slaughtering and meat production enterprises above designated size is 4,814. These enterprises have certain measuring services and equipment requirements. Therefore, food safety measuring instruments will also take on greater responsibilities in the future.

As an important guardian of food safety, food safety measuring instruments protect people's table safety. The better the development of the measuring instrument, the better the food safety of people. Faced with the problems in the food safety industry and a large number of market demands, measuring instruments will have more room for development.
