The State Council Party and State Organizations Special Food Supply Center was established in April 2004. It was a collaborative organ of the State Council Veteran Cadre Activities Center National Organic Produce Supply. It is supported by the State Council Logistics Base, Central Security Bureau farms, and supply bases spread over all 13 provinces, municipalities directly under central government control and autonomous regions. These bases supply the 94 ministries' and commissions' veteran cadres with high quality organic food products.The State Council Party and State Organizations Special Food Supply Center carefully oversees the process by which all food products, tea, alcohol etc. are chosen. There are only a handful of products that merit the label "Special Product to Central Party and State Organs." All the organic produce is carefully selected according to international and national organic production standards, and inspected according to rigorous national approval processes. All corporations and centers that pass this supply system process are periodically reevaluated, and if their standards do not remain of the highest caliber they are excluded.
China's latest Infant Milk Contamination scandal has sparked anger among the general populace due to the fact that China's leaders do not have to worry about food safety concerns because they obtain their food from the Special Food Supply Center.
