Do you know where the food you put in your mouth comes from and how it is made?
Taiwan was caught in a food safety storm. Back then, the poor production of an edible oil caused many related products to be taken off the shelves one after another, including meat sauce, meat floss, and even other products of the group's companies, such as the start of a well-known fresh milk brand. Strong resistance from consumers. "What food is there to eat?" has become the voice of most people.
When the whole of Taiwan was under the dark cloud of distrust of food, a dairy veterinarian, Gong Jianjia, started a white revolution and established a fresh milk brand "Fresh Milk Workshop" to provide veterinarians with on-site inspection, strict selection of a single pasture, no ingredient adjustment, and fair trade of high quality Fresh milk, protect the health of consumers, and take into account the rights and interests of dairy farmers and animal welfare. Starting from a bottle of milk, I hope to re-establish the relationship between people, land and food.
Gong Jianjia believes that "people who choose to buy a product are actually supporting all the things behind it, including the choice of raw materials, the way of feeding, the way of production, etc." When everyone understands the process of food from the place of origin to the table and has the ability to choose ingredients, It can also influence the market to provide commodities of corresponding quality and promote a virtuous circle - which is why food and agriculture education is so important to contemporary people.
When food farming education becomes a compulsory course for everyone, master 3 keywords to eat smart everyday
To become a smart foodie with a sense of food farming, Gong Jianjia suggested that you can start from mastering the " origin of a food - understand where the food comes from", "production method - understand the production process of food", "production and sales method - Understand the path food takes to get to your hands" 3 keywords to start.
How to obtain this information when purchasing ingredients, you can start with knowing the "production history". When shopping at ordinary times, you can pay attention to whether there is a green circular "TAP Production and Sales History Agricultural Products" certification and qrcode on the packaging. Just scan it, you can understand how this product reaches your hands from the place of origin.
The importance of understanding the food journey is that when a food can be traced back to its production history, it means that consumers can know who is responsible for the safety of the product, whose quality has been checked, and which environmental and animal welfare standards it meets.
"It seems like a small action, but it is enough to affect the appearance of the entire agriculture." Gong Jianjia said that when the public is more willing to take the initiative to understand the journey of food, the industry also needs to simultaneously and transparently make the production process of food transparent for everyone to inspect. The intention can be seen, and the consumer side can also directly support it with consumption, which can establish two-way trust and promote a good dialogue.
