Food Pillory introduces information on inspections of the State Veterinary Administration


Application Food Pillory operated since 2012 by the Czech Agriculture and Food Inspection Authority (CAFIA) has been extended by detections resulting from inspections carried out by the State Veterinary Administration (SVA), namely since 15th November 2016.

Information for consumers on inspections carried out by SVA will complement CAFIA detections on unsafe, adulterated or poor-quality foodstuffs and closed premises in the CR.

“It is further logical step towards higher level of consumers’ protection. The aim is to provide them with as much important information as possible. This information should be provided easily, in a well arranged manner and on one spot,” Marian Jurečka, Minister of Agriculture said.

CAFIA Director General Martin Klanica mentioned that “More information available to consumers will enable better orientation within the retail offer, as well as avoiding purchasing poor-quality foodstuffs and easier decision-making during purchasing.”

In a European manner the Food Pillory is a unique project making results of inspections carried out by an state supervisory authority public. The website has been visited by no less than 4 million visitors so far and 3,300 non-compliant lots were made public here together with information on 379 premises that were closed down.

In 2012, 2013 and 2014 the website was awarded by the Czech Internet award - Crystal Magnifying Glass (Publicly Beneficial Service Category). The project was extended by mobile application (more than 68,000 downloads) and accounts on social networks – Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
