  "This is the pepper planting in our base. We distribute the seedlings to the local villagers. When they are mature, we will go to the local area to buy them at the market price, and transport them back to be used as the base material for self-heating food. On the one hand, the health of the raw materials is guaranteed. On the other hand, it can also help the villagers increase their income." Xiao Lei, product manager of Chongqing Chunlin Juye Food Co., Ltd., pointed to the 3,000-acre pepper plantation base in front of him, explaining.

  In recent years, Rongchang District of Chongqing City is actively creating a national food safety demonstration city, continuously improving food safety governance capabilities and governance levels, consolidating the "background" of healthy development, allowing production to have a "bottom line", and keeping the people's "safety on the tip of the tongue".

  Keep the safety of food raw materials so that people can eat "comfortably"

  Spicy and delicious hot pot, traditional nine big bowls and other meat dishes, after cooking and processing, become healthy and convenient self-heating food, which can be delivered to consumers soon through logistics and transportation.

  "For self-heating food, it is most important to ensure the health of food raw materials." Xiao Lei, product manager of Chongqing Chunlin Juye Food Co., Ltd., said that while food additives change the taste, color, shape and prolong the shelf life of food, they also bring varying degrees of harm.

How to satisfy the public's transformation from "eat enough" to "eat well" is undoubtedly the meaning of the development of green food.

  In the past, every household in Yuanjue Town, Rongchang District, Chongqing City had the habit of growing peppers, and it was known as the "Chili Town".

However, the scale is small, the varieties are mixed, and the benefits are low. The villagers basically "look at the sky" to grow peppers.

  To this end, Chongqing Chunlin Juye Food Co., Ltd. cooperated with Yuanjue Town, Rongchang District, Chongqing City, and implemented the "company + cooperative + farmer" model, adopting unified organization for seed supply, unified centralized seedling cultivation, unified standard planting, unified technical services, and unified orders Acquisition of "five unifications" measures to ensure that the raw materials of prefabricated dishes delivered to the company's Qixin Foods are healthy and environmentally friendly.

  Xiao Lei said that the company has standardized packaging, production licenses, implementation standards, nutrition labels, and ingredient lists. Especially in the supply of raw materials, it "grasps the source" and explores the development model of "integration of three industries" to practice rural revitalization. , to achieve product standardization and ecological farming.

  Integrating the entire industrial chain and taking the green ecological "breeding road"

  Clean pens, advanced breeding equipment... In the Yuanjue fattening farm of Qitai Rongchang pigs, the reporter saw that the fattening farm has three major functional areas of production, life management and waste treatment, and has created a green and ecological farming road.

  Rongchang pig is one of the eight excellent pig breeds in the world. It is known as the "national treasure" in the animal husbandry industry. It has excellent characteristics such as good meat quality, resistance to rough feeding, good hybrid combination ability, and high lean meat rate.

In recent years, Rongchang District has centered on the big article of "Rongchang pigs" to promote the development of pig breeding in the direction of greening, intensification, intelligence and digitization.

  The reporter learned that in terms of resource utilization of livestock and poultry farming waste, Rongchang implemented a county-wide promotion project for the utilization of livestock and poultry manure resources, and explored biological fermentation beds, high-temperature aerobic fermentation, "pig-marsh-bamboo", dry-wet separation , centralized collection and storage and other treatment modes have realized the transformation of livestock and poultry manure from waste to treasure.

  In terms of germplasm resource protection, the district has built a Rongchang pig breeding system that pays equal attention to "breed conservation farm + protected area + gene bank", and built a national gene bank and freezer.

At the same time, Rongchang has established an agricultural and animal husbandry high-tech industrial structure based on livestock and poultry slaughtering, intensive processing, biomedicine, feed processing, and animal husbandry machinery and equipment.

  As of September 2022, the brand value of Rongchang Pig will reach 3.681 billion yuan, with a comprehensive output value of 8.64 billion yuan.

  Photovoltaic power generation "enhancing energy" makes food production have a "bottom line"

  To make people feel "comfortable", enterprises must not only make development "steady", but also "sustainable".

  Recently, photovoltaic power generation equipment has been put into use on the roof of the factory of Chongqing Chunlin Juye Food Co., Ltd. This enterprise is the first industrial enterprise in Rongchang District to use Rongchang's "green electricity".

  "Using photovoltaic power generation is clean, environmentally friendly and cheap." Xiao Lei told reporters that the company can generate about 540,000 kWh per year, accounting for 30% of the company's total electricity consumption, and the cost of use is at least 0.2 yuan per kWh lower than that of the State Grid. Cost savings of at least 100,000 yuan.

  In July 2022, Rongchang District officially laid out the distributed photovoltaic resource development project on the roof of enterprises. After the project is fully completed, it is expected to provide 640 million kWh of clean energy per year, enabling high-quality development with "green electricity".

  Yan Rong, deputy director of the Market Supervision and Administration Bureau of Rongchang District, Chongqing City, said that in recent years, Rongchang District has taken measures such as "making the stock bigger and stronger, recruiting big and attracting excellent ones" and other measures based on the development foundation and planning of the food industry, and the development of the food industry has achieved remarkable results. .

At present, there are 205 food production enterprises in Rongchang District, employing more than 4,000 people, building a "1+3+1" modern industrial cluster, and the total industrial output value has exceeded 100 billion yuan.

  Yan Rong said that Rongchang District will improve the whole-process control from the field to the dining table, build a solid line of defense for food safety, escort the high-quality development of the food industry, and create a safe and healthy environment for consumers.
