FSSAI HELP LINE : 1 800 11 2100  --   Adulteration is a crime against humanity !!          Safe Food is Your Right !!

Welcome To Food Safety Portal

Foodborne illness is preventable and is a burden on not only on the family’s financial income but also on the nation’s health cost. The increasing gap between food production and consumption and changing food habits in the food chain has made the need for safe food inevitable. The purpose of this website is to increase the awareness on food safety among consumers and thereby influence safe food manufacturing and buying practices.

 

The Indian Government has drafted the Food Safety and Standards Act 2006 which consolidates various acts & orders that have hitherto handled food related issues in various Ministries and Departments. Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) has been created for laying down science based standards for articles of food and to regulate their manufacture, storage, distribution, sale and import to ensure availability of safe and wholesome food for human consumption.

Mass contact education programme on food safety, standards and unsafe food

CAI, in Partnership with FSSAI, for the first time in India, has launched an IEC campaign to spread awareness about the FSS Act 2006 among consumers and Food Business Operators (FBO). Average consumers are not aware of the Act and Food Business Operators are apprehensive of it as they do not understand the act completely. In order to effectively implement the act, it is important that awareness about FSS Act is spread amongst consumers and Food Business Operators..

They will influence their peers and their society/community to practice safe food practices. FSCs will work with FBOs,Consumers and the local authorities to improve food standards in their locality.
