Economic Affairs Vice Minister

Chang Chi Foodstuff Factory Co cooking oil scandal

Responding to the scandal regarding the adulteration and mislabeling of cooking oil made by Chang Chi Foodstuff Factory Co. in October 2013, Duh said that although the cooking oil company had obtained the Good Manufacturing Practice (GMD) certificate, the company might give wrong information regarding their manufacturing process to the Industrial Development Bureau. He said that currently the bureau is reviewing the GMD system and might require manufacturers to present its export and import activities and declaration and to allow on-the-spot inspection of their production lines when seeking certification.[11]
