JAPAN - Amid growing concerns over food safety, Japan will soon implement a labeling system for pork, poultry, rice and vegetables. The Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries Ministry is to introduce the labeling of pork with information from a pig's birth to its slaughter, a system already implemented for beef products since last December. The tracing labels for beef will become mandatory from December this year.
