Read More FSSAI has joined hands with CHIFSS (CII-HUL Initiative on Food Safety Sciences) with the purpose of driving activities related to science based food safety in the country, to strengthen protection of consumers and create an innovative environment for the industry.
This pioneering partnership plans to promote collaborations between Industry, Scientific Community, Academia, Key Opinion Formers and Domain Experts with FSSAI to co-produce food safety as a shared responsibility. Ministry of Food Processing and Industries, Government of India jointly with Confederation of Indian (CII) is organizing ‘World Food India’ from 3-5 November 2017 at New Delhi.
However, number and spread of food testing labs in the country is grossly inadequate.
While, Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) is working towards having more food testing labs both in the public as well as private sector, it has also initiated a scheme to provide mobile units for food testing to reach out to consumers through as many touch points as possible. A National Milk Quality Survey is being carried out across India covering all the States and Union territories in the country for assessing the quality of milk available to the consumers with focus on unsafe/adulterated milk.

FSSAI guides every food business operator to have at least one trained and certified person in their business premises to ensure food safety. Foodborne diseases are an important cause of morbidity and mortality, and a significant impediment to socio- conomic development worldwide, but the full extent and burden of unsafe food, and especially the burden arising fromchemical and parasitic contaminants, has been unknown. With it's presence on 21 locations (6 ports) throughout the country, the import clearance mechanism of the authority is strongly established and has been expanding ever since.

Ensuring safe and nutritious food for 130 crore Indian citizens on Pan-India basis calls for massive outreach efforts.
It’s a participatory call for the collective journey towards creating a culture of food safety and nutrition across the country.
The objections or suggestions, if any, are required to be reviewed and addressed to the authority for effective consideration. A system of network of organizations with the aim to facilitate a scientific co-operation framework by the co-ordination of activities, the exchange of information, the development and implementation of joint projects within the Food Authority's responsibility FSSAI has established Food Safety Knowledge Assimilation Network (FSKAN). There is a mandatory requirement of displaying FSSAI License Number at food premises.
The FSDB will replace the current requirement in the Food Safety and Standards regulations which necessitate food businesses to display FSSAI Registration / license.
FSSAI firmly believes this can only be achieved in partnership with multiple stakeholders viz.
Industry Associations, Corporates (both within and outside the food business), Civil society Organisations and Academic/ Research Bodies.
