Pesticide residue as a problem was fully realized in 2002. A Chinese frozen food company, 'A' Company, as requested by a Japanese company who was the customer, has established a quality control system based on a farm system. In this system, the worker and administrator work according to a cultivation plan, with the use of agricultural chemicals managed by the regulations of 'A' firm. This system has the following advantages. High-value-added farm products can be exported, the result being that new customers can be acquired and the amount of overall exports increase. Production information is disclosed on a Web site, the result being that both company and customers increase efficiency. Finally, the farmer can obtain a steady income and the land fee. The following problems remain in this system. Purchase of a production facility is required and labor costs increase as an increasing number of workers is needed. It is difficult for the company to acquire acreage and industrialized zone sites as well as to expand the existing site. Finally, it is necessary to educate the staff, in order to ensure expertise concerning quality control.
