As a necessity of human life, the soundness of food safety mechanism is closely related to people's living quality. With the constant change of people's mentality, more attention is paid to the living standard and level of food safety, yet the current level of food safety cannot meet people's demand, which has led to a growing gap between the current situation of food safety and consumers’ demand. Therefore, the level of food safety regulation needs to be measured urgently. Based on the stakeholder theory, this paper analyzes the relevant behaviors of stakeholders in the process of food safety regulation, designs the corresponding index system of food safety regulation level, and designs the index weight with the analytic hierarchy process so as to construct the evaluation index system for the level of food safety regulation.
