Meat Delivery

Chinese food handling laws and procedures are different to those in the west. Do you believe me?

Would you like your butcher to deliver meat like this?

The meat is transported from the market on a tray on wheels - no wrapping, just sitting on the wooden tray.

Then, with no gloves, the meat is picked up and put into the back of a tricycle for delivery, along with other items for delivery. No covering. The weather is very cold, but still I would have expected some different treatment of the meat

Would never do here in NZ

Nor anywhere else in the Western world I suspect. Strange that there are not more health problems, but then on reflection there are more health problems there than we know about.

Ohh... Same here.. We never do that as well. We are avoiding the contamination of the raw food and of course the safety of the consumers are the first concern.
