Food safety is an important issue related to people's livelihood. In recent years, with the government's high attention, the food safety situation has improved slightly, but there are still many problems, and food safety incidents occur frequently. Through investigation and analysis, it is found that the current regulatory system presents "multi-head mixed management" in the main design, “one-way and one-dimensional” in the structure design, and "subsection supervision" in the operation mechanism. These drawbacks seriously affect the effectiveness of supervision. It is necessary to reconstruct China's food safety governance system, giving full play to the functions of government leaders, corporate responsibility and public beneficiaries; making full use of trust mechanism and collaboration mechanism to construct a multi-dimensional network system; and in the design of operational mechanism, promoting multi-dimensional collaboration by clarifying responsibilities, improving technology and information disclosure.
