The present research is focused on OBEJECTIVE: Dairy and Rice Safety of China, to discuss the reasons of recently serious food safety incidents in China. The OBEJECTIVE of the research is to present the Three Main Steps to analyze the food safety in China, and design a better industry system in Chongqing city: - Background study of food safety issues in China, to summarize the why and how; - Case study of dairy and rice industries in Chongqing city, to detail local questions; - According to systemic design concept, to find a possible solution for food safety in China. The article followed the 4 PARTS to proceed the research: PART ONE: Background study. According to researches, it is summarized four types of food safety incidents in rencent 10 years: the Adulterated Food, Food Additives, Pesticide Food, Fake Food; according to the analysis of Dairy and Rice Safety incidents, there are four main reasons caused food safety issues: Agriculture, Policy Control, Social Supervision, Industry System. Therefore, this research proposed two possible solutions: one is to track food safety from agriculture to consuming by coding, so that everyone can achieve every details of food they chose by scanning the different code; another is to design a better systemic industry, which is safer, more ecological, more profit, less pollution. PART TWO: Case study of dairy (Chongqing Tianyou Dairy Group) and rice (Chongqing Qiaoping Rice Group) industries in Chongqing City. Discover more details and local problems. To the aspect of dairy, It is found that the dairy cow diet is the key point, which means china dairy cows eat worse than that of Europe, so that a better cow diet is suggested; to the aspect of rice, without illegal food additive, but a good agriculture, rice should have an original good quality. PART THREE: Systemic Design. According to Part two, the cow diet may act as the breakthrough. After researching, Algae, Mushroom Chaff, Rice Wine Grains, Rice husk have been tested to be good choice for cow diet. Thus, according to systemic design concept, Industries: Dairy, Rice, Mushroom, Fish, Rice Wine, Algae, are taken into account to design a better industry system of Chongqing. From Output to Input, from Agriculture to Production, a better industry system is designed to gain more profits of three times, more products, less pollution. To the aspect of dairy cow diet, due to more nutrient materials (5% more protein, 0.4% more fat, 4% less fiber), the production of Chongqing dairy milk may rise 10% amount, and more nutrient content which may reach the China Raw Milk Standard. PART FOUR: In conclusion, according researching above, Systemic Design has developed the food industry system in Chongqing city, realized ZERO emission, more profits, more products. The more important is this new system indeed has the potential to solve the food safety problems in China, turning from a linear industry to a industry systemic, from chemical agriculture into a ecological agriculture,from output into a ZERO emission, from harmful to friendly to environment and humans.
