Food safety Training & Certification
In India, Food Safety and Standards Act, 2006 (FSSAI) have been enacted for regulating food business operators all over India. FSSAI oversees that the food being supplied in the country must be safe and hygienic for consumption.
Enacting law, providing licence and registration, calling for information all these steps will went into vain if the hygiene is not maintained at the premises where food businesses are operated.
To ensure this safety, a programme was launched by FSSAI in July 2017 i.e. Food safety Training & Certificate (FosTaC). This programme intends to create a pool of food safety supervisor who will be trained to assure hygiene and manufacturing process as prescribed under the FSSAI regulations. It will also spread awareness regarding food safety among people.
