Oil scandal causes NT$5 bil. loss: Duh石油醜聞導致新台幣500 BIL。損失:咄

 


Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) lawmaker Lin Tai-hua (林岱樺) asked Duh if the Ministry of Economic Affairs (MOEA) has any plans to respond to mainland China's announcement that it will forbid imports from Taiwanese food companies involved in the incident.

He made the comments after the food safety scandal brought to light the fact that over 1,000 food companies and restaurants around Taiwan used oil products supplied by Chang Guann Co. (強冠) — a domestic oil manufacturer that allegedly produced lard oil products made of oil intended for industrial use and oil recycled from kitchen waste.During an interpellation session at the Legislative Yuan, Duh said the damage of the scandal to the reputation of Taiwan's food industry, however, is “incalculable.” The reputations of the companies involved in the incident have been hit more severely than their earnings, the minister said.


Economics Minister Duh Tyzz-jiun (杜紫軍) yesterday said the recent tainted oil scandal has caused an estimated loss of NT$5 billion — about 1 percent of the nation's food industry's annual revenue.
 

In response, Duh said that the only consolation for Taiwan's image is that foods processed at home are mainly for domestic consumption and not for export, noting that the MOEA will offer assistance to Taiwanese food companies if they need help.

Kuomintang (KMT) lawmaker Wu Yu-sheng (吳育昇) said that many people thought the Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) certification system guaranteed the safety of a food product, but actually it is the Good Hygiene Practice (GHP) system that demands that food products meet hygiene standards. Even if the processing of a food product meets the GMP standard, it cannot guarantee that the product is safe to eat.

Wu went on to say that it should not be the MOEA, which is responsible for the GMP system, that regulates the nation's food products. He urged the premier to combine the GMP and GHP systems and to focus on promoting the GHP system.

The lawmaker further argued that instead of allocating extra funds to the GHP or the Ministry of Health and Welfare (MHW) to promote food safety issues, Cabinet Minister without Portfolio Chiang Been-huang (蔣丙煌) granted NT$80 million to the MOEA's Industrial Development Bureau (IDB) to promote the GMP system.

MHW Head Vows to Resolve Scare in 14 Days or Resign

In response, MHW Minister Chiu Wen-ta (邱文達) said his ministry has been promoting the GHP system after the Act Governing Food Safety and Sanitation was amended this February.

The MOEA said it will conduct a survey to consult public opinion on the GMP system in October. If the public thinks the program fails to boost consumer confidence, the ministry will then consider scrapping the system, the MOEA said.

The health minister during the interpellation said that if he cannot guarantee that all tainted food products have been removed from shelves after two weeks, then he will bear the responsibility and resign from his post.

Chiu said there should not be any tainted food products on the shelves by now, adding that a nationwide food inspection will be kicked off today and be completed in two weeks.

石油醜聞導致新台幣500 BIL。損失:咄

經濟部長咄Tyzz - 君(杜紫軍)昨日表示,近期原油污染的醜聞已經引起了新台幣500十億預計虧損 - 全國食品行業的年收入約1%。

在立法院的質詢會議,咄說,醜聞對台灣食品業的聲譽的損害,但是,是“不可估量”。涉及事件的公司的聲譽受到的衝擊更為嚴重超過他們的收入時,部長說。

他讓敗露了超過1000食品公司和台灣各地餐廳使用的昌冠偉科技有限公司提供的成品油(強冠)的事實,食品安全醜聞後的評論 - 涉嫌生產豬油的產品製成的油國內石油生產商用於工業用途和油的廚餘回收再利用。

民進黨(DPP)立委林太華(林岱樺)問咄如果經濟事務部(MOEA)有否計劃以應對中國大陸宣布將禁止從參與該事件的台灣食品公司進口。

對此,咄表示,對於台灣的形象,唯一的安慰是,在國內加工的食品主要為國內消費而不是出口,並指出,如果他們需要幫助,經濟部將提供台灣食品公司的協助。

國民黨立委吳育升(吳育升)說,很多人認為良好生產規範(GMP)認證體系保證食品的安全,但實際上它是良好衛生規範(GHP)系統,該系統要求食品產品符合衛生標準。即使食品的處理符合GMP標準,它不能保證該產品可以安全食用。

武接著說,它不應該是經濟部,負責GMP的制度,即規定了國家的糧食產品。他敦促總理要結合GMP和地源熱泵系統,並重點推進地源熱泵系統。

國會議員進一步指出,而不是分配額外的資金,以地源熱泵或衛生和福利部(MHW),以促進食品安全問題,內閣不管部部長蔣去過煌(蔣丙煌)授予新台幣8000萬美元的經濟部工業局(IDB)推動GMP體系。

厚生省負責人誓言化解恐慌的14天或辭職

對此,厚生省大臣趙雯-TA(邱文達)說,他的部門一直在推動地源熱泵系統後,該法管理食品安全衛生進行了修正今年二月。

經濟部表示,將進行調查,徵詢公眾意見的GMP體系在十月。如果公眾認為該方案未能提振消費信心,工信部會考慮報廢制度,經濟部說。

在質詢過程中的衛生部長說,如果他不能保證所有被污染的食品已經從貨架上取下後兩週,那麼他將承擔責任,並從他的崗位辭職。

邱說,不應該在貨架上的任何污染的食品到現在,並稱在全國范圍內食品檢驗將於今日拉開序幕,並在兩週內完成。
