Dr. Harsh Vardhan inaugurates first-ever World Food Safety Day

Dr. Harsh Vardhan, Union Minister of Health and Family Welfare inaugurated the first-ever ‘World Food Safety Day’ on June 7, 2019 in New Delhi.

The theme for this day was ‘food safety, everyone’s business.’ A day was celebrated by Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI).

In India, the ‘Eat Right Movement’ is being conducted by FSSAI. In an effort to galvanize states to work towards ensuring safe food for citizens, FSSAI has developed the first State Food Safety Index (SFSI) to measure the performance of States on five parameters of food safety.

At the function, the Union Health Minister felicitated seven leading States/UTs based on the ranking for the year 2018-2019 for their impressive performance. These were Chandigarh, Goa, Gujarat, Kerala, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu.
