III. Strategy adjustment and innovation in food safety and health management

1. Strategy of Food Industry Structure Affecting Food Safety and Health Management (hereinafter referred to as Food Safety Management)

After major food safety incidents, including the 2008 melamine milk powder incident and the 2011 plasticizer contaminated food incident, this Council has found that the food industry and production and marketing systems have become increasingly complex in recent years. Food distribution from transnational to local, its complex production and marketing network has led to obstacles in food safety and health management such as high auditing difficulty and difficult management. Food from the source to the consumer side, after multi-layer processing and production, it is easy to expand and expand due to a limited number of ingredients, raw materials or semi-finished products, forming a food safety incident with a hundred thousand times impact. In the practice of auditing, subject to administrative auditing authority and statutory coercive force, the health authorities must also seek the assistance of the local prosecutor's office when necessary, and check with the prosecution before they can seize the first time. Inbound and outbound information, quickly grasp the flow.

2. organization and strategy adjustment of food safety management

The food safety authority should have keen observation and judgment on illegal food and its source and flow. For the handling of major food safety incidents, it is necessary to give full play to the profession, to find out the key evidence of illegal foods, to clarify the incoming and outgoing materials in a timely manner, and to quickly grasp the source and flow. In normal times, it is necessary to establish a smooth communication channel with the local inspection department, and cooperate with each other. In the event of a major food safety incident, it is necessary to have the ability to quickly collect literature and analyze the lawfulness in order to quickly stop the illegality and eliminate illegal food.

To strengthen food safety management, the Department continued to improve its food safety management strategies, including:

1. The adjustment of the food operation mode of the food safety organization, from the two-tier bureaucratic organization to the high-performance team
In order to break the restrictions on townships and towns and improve auditing mobility, a five-partition joint inspection team was established in 1994. In 1999, the Health Inspection Division was established, and the auditors returned to the bureau for unified scheduling to strengthen the flexibility and mobility of manpower scheduling, and to improve the quality and effectiveness of inspections through specialization. In the professional division of labor of the organization, a separate mode of investigation and management is adopted. In addition, the inspection and dispatch management information system was gradually established, and the inspection team was configured to be highly maneuverable and dispatched quickly. The major cases reached the scene within one hour as the performance target. In order to improve the quality of the audit professional, the form is also integrated to optimize the content, quality and form of the audit. The food and equipment management and equipment of Changhua County have also been supported by the county magistrate, which has been enriched year by year. The annual budget has increased from 7.7 million in 100 years to 25 million in 103 years, a three-fold increase.
2. Adjustment of food safety inspection strategy
includes strengthening source management and cultivating the ability of inspectors to check upstream and cross-tracking from downstream. In addition, we also started from the channel vendors (distributors) to simultaneously manage the source and important channels. Taking the inspection of the food suppliers of the school's nutritious lunch as an example, in addition to setting the target of 100% of the sampling quality of the eight categories of ingredients, the source of the supply of food for the food suppliers and the time of purchase of the ingredients were adopted. The mode of management, dawning and attacking, with no time, no warning, five times in the morning, five divisions, simultaneous inspection and inspection.
3. Over-emphasis project, take the initiative to attack, crack down on illegality
4. Establish a cooperation platform with Changhua District Inspection Office and cooperate with each other
5. Organizational transformation at the time of major food safety incidents
Currently establish a mechanism for inter-departmental collaboration in an emergency, and cultivate a tacit understanding of communication and cooperation. In the event of a major food safety incident, the organizational transformation model at the time of crisis management was quickly adopted, the division of departments was broken, the division of labor was coordinated across departments, and the mobility of the team was activated to expand and maintain the quantity of inspections.

IV. Elected in the Heart of the Outstanding Contribution Award: Review of the Datong Oil Product Case

In October of October, Changhua County Health Bureau and Changhua District Inspection Bureau cracked the first major oil product falsification incident in China.

2. Breaking the department's establishment, organizational transformation is in place quickly

When a major food safety incident occurred, the people felt strongly and had sudden emergencies. The competent authorities must deal with multiple problems at the same time, consider law enforcement procedures, and invest a large amount of manpower in the short term to respond positively. Therefore, the normal food safety management inspection organization should be able to quickly convert into an emergency response system for the food safety incident, in order to carry out inspection and punishment, recycling, tracking, inventory destruction, administrative ruling, cross-county coordination, press release and public consultation.

VI. Expectancy: Waiting for the food industry to upgrade the industry and re-lighting MIT's signboard

Under the first year after the occurrence of the Datong mixed oil case, a major food safety incident involving the recovery of oil and feed oil into edible lard has occurred, affecting the wide range of damages for up to 2 months, except for large oil plants. In addition to the spare, the food manufacturing and catering industries downstream have also suffered a lot. The outbreak of major food safety incidents has shown that the laws and regulations of food safety management and the management philosophy of the food industry are facing a turning point. In addition to re-examining the issues of management capacity management, crisis management and public communication at all levels of government, we should also actively face the challenges of cross-industry, cross-domain, cross-county, and transnational governance of food safety. With the re-engineering of the food safety management system, the government, enterprises and the public can work together to create a win-win situation, so that Taiwan's food industry can create a core advantage in the global competition.
