Koreans will soon be able to check the food on their tables as the government will compile a list of information on potentially harmful foods and put it up on the Internet next year.

The system will enable consumers to check the production history of food by indicating the name of the product, where it was sold, and its country of origin.

The Ministry for Food, Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries says it plans to revise related laws this year and monitor the entire process of getting food into the local market.

And stricter benchmarks for food safety under the World Health Organization's certification, called CODEX, will also be applied.

All this information will be laid out on a new unified website.

Until now, different websites separately provided information on agro-livestock and fisheries.

Officials expect that the new site will protect people as previous hazardous food products related to melamine and malachite green occurred from a lack of information.
