New Delhi: Commemorating a decade of integrated food law in the country and marking ten years of Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI), PM Narendra Modi, in his congratulatory message, underscored the ‘need for the authority to focus on empowering the consumers so that the manufacturers and suppliers of food products become responsive to consumer needs, demands and expectations.’ He further added that ‘safe, wholesome and hygienic food will create a ‘Swasth Bharat’. And this has to be cornerstone of the efforts of FSSAI.’
Speaking at the function organised by FSSAI to commemorate 10 years of the enactment of Food Safety and Standard Act (FSSAI Act), here recently, Union health and Family Welfare minister J P Nadda stated that “Food safety is a very important health and economic issue. It has high employment potential, can boost exports of agro-products and also provide better returns to farmers for their produce. Provisions of safe food should become a part of ingrained culture in our country.”
