To make food sources safe and traceable for the China International Import Expo (CIIE), the Shanghai Administration for Market Regulation has selected 5 collective food suppliers and 4 delivery companies with good credit to unify the raw material supplies for the 77 vendors in the venues.

Considering exhibition participants' great demand for catered meals and the multitude of cuisines and suppliers, the market regulator has sent experts to scrutinize the 30 food delivery companies, clarifying categories of food and setting requirements for length and temperature during delivery. 

Shanghai Administration for Market Regulation has also trained over 260 executives and managers from food suppliers, strengthening the process, storage, disinfection of meat and marine products on cold chains.

Outside the venues, raw materials for cold chains are supervised round the clock from 42 uploading spots, 4 logistic companies, 5 collective delivery providers to hotels for CIIE guests. The Shanghai Administration for Market Regulation has also urged the food suppliers to secure storage and freezers for CIIE, promoted domestic food material and conducted sample nucleic acid tests for cold chain food, packages and equipment.

Inside the venues, 77 restaurants and 32 temporary catering spots are checked continuously. So far, the market regulation department has conducted 458 inspections for cold chains and 408 nucleic acid tests for food samples, all proven negative.
