Guangzhou's Huangpu district bagged 21 awards at the Guangdong Science and Technology Award Conference, which was held in Guangzhou on April 15.
Nineteen of Huangpu's awards are Guangdong Science & Technology Progress Awards and the other two are for technological innovation.
The Huangpu-based Huankai Microbial participated in a project on the establishment and innovative application of China food microbiological safety science database, and the project won one of the only three grand prizes at the Guangdong Science & Technology Progress Awards.
The project focused on the key technical bottlenecks in China's food microbiological safety, resulting in a 90 percent reduction in microbial contamination in food. It is projected to significantly improve China's food microbiological safety while also assisting the country's rural vitalization.
