Food Safety in India

Any nation’s social and health priorities must include food safety. The recent scandal over one of the world’s leading dairy and food products businesses’ failure to follow food safety regulations has thrown food safety problems in India into closer attention. Food safety is necessary for economic growth and advancement, along with health. The food processing sector in India has enormous employment potential and can increase agricultural product export with farmers receiving the greatest financial benefits provided food safety criteria are met. Despite the presence of food safety laws, adequate implementation of food safety regulations and standards is missing. This is due to an inherent lack of investigation centres of food channels. India has fewer food testing laboratories compared to China and the United States. Food testing technology has seen advances in recent years. However, not all current investigation centres for food safety adopt this technology. Food analysts are seldom present in quantities that will saturate state-run investigation centres. This leads to the premature closure of food testing laboratories.

Hence it has become vital to involve the private sector to overcome the loopholes that state-run food investigation facilities possess. These privately run food-related businesses often establish Food Safety Management Systems based on customer requirements and demands for safe food production. However, it becomes necessary to verify at regular intervals if these companies follow the rules and regulations of the local legislation for food production and safety. One such local legislation is FSSAI (Food Safety and Standards Authority of India). Similarly, the Food Safety and Standards Act of 2006, as well as its Rules and Regulations, have had a significant influence on all food business operators, including the processed food sector, storage and warehouses, and food retailers. This verification is done by SafeFoodz among the many other food audit companies.
