The Supreme People's Procuratorate, the Supreme People's Court and five other departments recently made public the minutes of their meeting where it was suggested that the penalties for food safety violators be raised.

The meeting also raised the possibility of introducing a compensation system to better protect consumers' legal rights.

Food safety concerns everybody as problematic food can harm any number of people. In recent years, the general food safety situation has been improving. However, reports still emerge about some supermarkets selling food that is past the expiry date or of factories replacing the original tag showing the date of production with erratic ones.
