FSSAI has actively been working on food safety regulations over time. The COVID pandemic has compelled us to rethink on every aspect of food production. Thus Food Marketing & Technology Magazine together with Food Safety Helpline will address the industry’s day-to-day challenges.
Since 2013 the team at FoodSafetyHelpline.com has published more than 1500 articles and answered thousands of questions and we are now very pleased to further expand our reach and support to even more food businesses.
To help the food businesses achieve their goal of self-regulation and compliance we had established the Food Safety Helpline in the year 2013 to disseminate the changes in a simple and easy to understand format and answer queries with the help of experts in the field.
The Food Safety and Standards Act of 2006 has dramatically transformed the food regulatory system in India. Food safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) has combined a labyrinth of complex laws into a much more simplified single law and has moved from an enforcement-based regulatory system to a self-regulatory system.
FSSAI has been actively working with various stakeholders including large and small food businesses, street food vendors, other regulators, consumer organizations and even international regulatory and standards bodies like ISO and FAO.
This has helped to rapidly evolve rules and regulation to ensure the availability of safe and nutritious food for all, while keeping in mind the interests of all stakeholders and harmonization with global regulations.
The onus of providing safe and nutritious food has been shifted to the food business operators and they must keep themselves updated with the latest requirements and quickly adopt new requirements to ensure ongoing compliance.
This partnership will be in the form of a regular column wherein we will be answering questions from readers.
