Abstract: Recently, food safety supervision has become one focus of attention and hotspot. According to reviews of research achievements on the international experience in food safety supervision, existing literatures mainly focus on the supervisory model, institution characteristics, mechanism design and specific punishment mechanism. Most scholars have pointed that many disadvantages and emissions exit in China’s food safety supervisory system, so institutional reform and system innovation are needed compared with developed countries. To perfect China’s food safety supervisory system must strengthen the legislation, complete the legal system guarantee for food safety supervision, and apply the “vertical supervision” and “concentrated supervision”. Specially speaking, we need to actively explore and innovate the supervision concept, supervisory system and supervision mechanism, strengthen the food safety supervision in supply chain links, establish the third-party testing system, especially strengthen the intensity of punishment on illegal enterprises, reinforce local government’s supervisory responsibility and build a supervision mechanism balancing interests of the government, enterprise and consumers.
