IBM to Build Food-Safety System for Pork in China’s Shandong

International Business Machines Corp., the world’s largest computer-services company, won a contract to build a food-monitoring system in China as the nation toughens supervision of food safety after scandals.

The system for Shandong Commercial Group Co. will ensure the safety of pork products in the coastal province, Harriet Ip, a spokeswoman in Singapore for Armonk, New York-based IBM, said in an e-mail today. Financial terms weren’t disclosed for the project, scheduled for completion in 2013.
