China's catering businesses have been asked to provide serving spoons and chopsticks for diners in an effort to promote healthier table manners among the public.

A proposal made by the China Hospitality Association asked catering companies to add serving spoons and chopsticks on dining tables where people sit together to share dishes or serve separate dishes to customers in order to stem the transmission of diseases.

Meanwhile, catering services should ensure proper sterilization of tableware and food hygiene, safety and traceability, said the proposal. It also banned the cooking, selling and serving of wild animals.

Director of the association Han Ming said eating separately would not only prevent and reduce cross infections, but also help solve food waste.
