Shanghai food authorities have issued a number of measures designed to strengthen supervision of food delivery platforms.

The guidelines cover local law enforcement of new food safety regulations which commenced in March, and list the penalties violators can expect to face.

The measures include checks on food-handling health certificates, in-transit hygiene and storage conditions.

They stipulate how cakes and similar products, seafood and fresh beverages must be delivered in thermal isolation boxes.

They also detail how cold and hot food should be kept apart, and temperature limits for individual product categories.

Food platforms have been under the microscope since a 2016 food safety report released by the Shanghai Food and Drug Administration showed that food deliveries had the lowest pass rate among all food manufacturing and operation sections.

Only 94.6% of spot tests met minimum standards within the category.
