    Supermarkets in China are planning to join forces to form an information-sharing platform to ensure food safety.

    The move is in response to the requirement of the newly-revised Food Safety Law.

    Commodities information, as well as food quality monitoring and assessment information will all be stored in the platform.

    Since June, some 20 large supermarket chains have carried out self-inspections, wiping out food safety risks within their own enterprises.

    Chu Dong is the deputy secretary-general of the China Chain Store and Franchise Association or CCSFA.

    "In the future, if any supplier or producers are found supplying fake commodities, retailers in the whole industry should boycott such commodities."

    The platform will also share information with other associations.

    The new law comes into effect this October, at which time consumers can ask for advanced compensation from supermarkets and other operators when their rights and interests are infringed upon.
