  A reporter from Sino-Singapore Jingwei contacted the staff of several flagship stores of salt e-commerce and asked whether they were affected by Japan's nuclear waste water discharge.

The customer service replied: "There is no impact, you can rest assured, it meets the national standards." When asked about the recent sales, the customer service said: "It is about the same as usual."

  China’s food industry analyst Zhu Danpeng told a reporter from Sino-Singapore Jingwei that Japan’s discharge of nuclear waste water is illegal and illegal, in violation of international conventions, and nuclear waste water is discharged into the sea, which has a huge impact on the entire marine ecology, from the perspective of fish and seafood. The impact is great, and it is the same for Haiyan. Whether it is from the policy side, the capital side, the industry side, and the consumer side, it will trigger a huge chain reaction and impact.

  Zhu Danpeng also added that in addition to sea salt, we also have lake salt and well salt, which will not cause panic topics. In particular, lake salt can be supplied from Qinghai and Ningxia. There is no need to panic buying salt.
