) revealed that it is again partnering China's State Food and Drug
Administration Institute for Executive Development (SFDAIED) to
carry out training on food safety for the food service industry.
The partnership is in alignment with the current five-year food
safety plan in China and is designed to train Chinese workers
engaged in the food service industry.
Ecolab is the world leader in developing and providing products
and services for food services, water, energy and healthcare
industry. The partnership underlines Ecolab's efforts at sharing
knowhow and solutions with the Chinese food service industry.
As per management, the training program is a reflection of the
company's commitment towards upgrading Chinese food safety
practices. The aim is to boost consumer confidence in China.
SFDAIED monitors training for planning and education, food and
drug regulatory systems, the policies and associated theories as
well as research and international exchange of ideas. Experts at
SFDAIED and Ecolab will conduct training for food service providers
and large, state-owned restaurants in Beijing, Wahun and Baise.
This is expected to strengthen operational standards, promote food
safety practices and increase public awareness of the importance of
food safety standards.
The fast paced food service industry engages a large number of
skilled and unskilled personnel in a labor-intensive environment.
The consequent difficulties of recruitment have been addressed by
the program with benefit extended to more than 15,000 consumers in
China. Seven hundred or more industry personnel will undergo
training in areas such as personal hygiene, proper equipment and
facility operation, cleaning, disinfection and pest control
Ecolab stepped into the Chinese market in 1987 with innovative
solutions in support of China's food-related businesses. Earlier in
2011, Ecolab played an important role in implementation of key
government regulations and fundamental safeguards by SFDAIED.
Although its competitors like

commitment in China remains unique. The company's efforts have also
been recognized by the Chinese authorities, as reflected by the
various awards it has received in recent times.
