Wal-Mart will invest $16.3 million during the next three years to expand food inspections, supply-chain management and supplier training to improve food safety in its China stores, the company said. The retailer began launching mobile food-testing labs operated by third parties about six months ago, and the service will be expanded to 70 stores; Wal-Mart operates about 380 stores in China and plans to open 30 more this year.
