4th State Food Safety Index Released: FSSAI

Recently the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MoHFW) has released the fourth State Food Security Index (SFSI) of FSSAI.

MoHFW released the State Food Safety Index (SFSI) 2021-22 of the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI). This index has been released on the occasion of World Food Security (WFS) Day.

The theme of World Food Safety Day, 2022 was ‘Safer Food, Better Health’.

This index is a dynamic quantitative and qualitative standard model. It provides an objective framework for assessment of food security in all States/UTs.

Five parameters of food safety:

  1. Human Resources and Institutional Data,
  2. Compliance,
  3. Food Testing Centre,
  4. Training and Capacity Building and
  5. Consumer Empowerment.

Key findings of Index:

  • Tamil Nadu has been ranked highest in the index. It is followed by Gujarat and Maharashtra.
  • Among the smaller states, Goa ranks first. It is followed by Manipur and Sikkim.
  • Among the Union Territories, Jammu and Kashmir occupies the highest position. It is followed by Delhi and Chandigarh.

Other steps taken to ensure food security:

  • ‘Eat Right India’ Initiative: It focuses on ushering in a ‘new food culture’ in the country that is both safe and healthy for the region.
  • Diet4Life: It helps people to understand about metabolic disorders.
  • Blissful Hygienic Offering to God (BHOG): This campaign encourages places of worship to adopt and maintain food safety and hygiene.
  • Heart Attack Rewind: This is a one of its kind mass media campaign. This will support FSSAI’s global goal of ending the use of trans-fats in India.

Food Safety and Standards Authority of India:

  • It is an autonomous body under the Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare.
  • It has been established under the Food Safety and Standards Act, 2006. This law is a consolidated law relating to food safety and regulation in India.
