A Structured Workshop on the Rules and Regulations set by the FDA for Restaurant Owners

–> Update: An FDA official, head of Brigade from Jing’An district, Mr. Xu Xin will be joining us during the Q&A.

Anyone who sells food should be responsible for the safety of their consumers. After all, food and beverage can be easily contaminated with harmful bacteria that can cause sickness and even death if not handled properly. This is why the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has been established to ensure that the food and drugs that are being consumed by the public are considered safe to eat.

In a city like Shanghai, each district has its own FDA department who is responsible, amongst many other things, of ensuring restaurants in their district are compliant with local regulations. That also goes through ensuring that kitchen design follows the regulations given by the FDA.

In this workshop brought to you by Mill Food Intelligence and NextStep, we will give you an overview of the different area of responsibilities of the FDA that are directly related to food service, with a special focus on the rules that apply to kitchen design. These rules are the main reason that a good number of restaurant openings get delayed: if the kitchen design has not been approved by the FDA, the restaurant will fail to get a license. Despite being complicated, those rules are far from being impossible to understand for a foreign restaurant owner.

Together with Federico Duarte, Head of Business Design at Mill Food Intelligence, you will go through the booklet of the FDA, step by step and understand the meaning of those rules.

In this workshop, you will:

  • Learn and understand the basic requirements set by the FDA in setting up and designing restaurant kitchen
  • Understand how food handling can affect the quality and safety of your establishment
  • Learn about proper food storage and the equipment you need to ensure food safety
  • Learn how proper waste disposal and sanitation can help prevent food-related illnesses
