BEIJING - Chinese Vice-Premier Wang Yang has called for combined efforts including enterprises' self-discipline, government supervision and public scrutiny to promote food safety in the country.

Wang made the comments Monday as activities marking national food safety week started.

He urged related government organizations to carry out innovative supervision methods that cover the entire process from the production of ingredients to the final products leaving the factory.

While encouraging strict public scrutiny to name and shame any industrial violations, Wang called on food companies to strengthen a sense of responsibility and improve quality management.

In addition, Wang urged improved legislation on food safety so as to provide the legal foundation for all parties involved in the issue.
