COPENHAGEN, Dec. 20 (Xinhua) -- Denmark is to tighten its control on food rules in January 2020, said Mogens Jensen, minister for Food, Fisheries and Equal Opportunities, in a statement released Friday.

The Danish Veterinary and Food Administration will target companies that repeatedly violate food laws, according to the statement.

"The control will be rescheduled," said Jensen. "Those who have shown that they have mastered the rules get fewer inspections and those companies in need of control see more inspections."

The new move is part of Food Conciliation 4, a legally standing agreement passed this fall to establish a more secure food safety framework.

"We wish to make it quite clear to all that food security must be taken seriously," said the minister.
