Safe for consumption? (21 Sep 2000)


Examines the problem of food safety standards in Hong Kong which have been found to be lagging behind the West. Specific problems of hygiene such as the close proximity of clean and dirty areas, the unhygienic handling and disposal of raw meat in wet markets, and their underlying causes are discussed. Mei Ng (Director, Friends of the Earth) and Sarah Wu (Deputy Director, Food and Environmental Hygiene Department) believe that culture is partly to blame while others think of inadequate space as a major cause of the problem. The difficulty of finding a quick solution to such problems is also talked about.
