Summit Food sanitation Forum Held

Date Posted: 2000-02-27

One of the biggest areas of concern for the Okinawa G-8 Summit organisers is with the food. To stress the importance of good food sanitation during the Summit, a forum called “Concern About Food During Okinawa Summit” was held in the Okinawa Convention Center on Sunday, February 20th.

The guest speaker at the forum was Chef Norio Negishi of Tokyo’s Hotel Okura, who is arguably the most experienced chef in Japan catering to foreign dignitaries. More than 100 hotel workers attended the forum.

In his lecture, Negishi said that “there will be more than 31,000 meals served during the Summit and the most important aspect is the good sanitation. In a small limited space, we have to prepare food that is good and safe.”

During the Nagano Olympic Games, Negishi was the chief cook at the Olympic Village. He has also written a book on sanitation and preserving food.

He said that the main problem is the typical weather in July. “Okinawa’s weather is very warm and humid in July, and those are conditions that bacteria thrive in. That’s why it’s very important that everyone who comes in touch with food is very careful and takes care of their personal cleanliness. The kitchens must also be very clean and well organised. That is the only way the sanitation will be up to par,” Negishi said.
