Fewer food licenses by the FSSAI resulting in Food-Borne Disorders

Updated: June 1, 2019

According to a recent report, only 4.67 lakh eating out places are licensed by the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India out of 25 lakh places including eateries, restaurants and dhabas. It indicates that the public health is at risk due to non-regulatory approach. The state food safety authorities have been asked by the FSSAI to issue licenses within two months of filing to eligible parties. However, the app-based food ordering business lead to the generation of more food outlets by those who do not have the FSSAI license.

As per the data of health ministry, acute diarrheal disease and food-borne disorders are more common amongst the individuals in India. The common cause of such disorders includes canteens, weddings and other eateries- where bulk quantity food is cooked.

Therefore, to eradicate food-borne disorders, the FSSAI has to ensure the effective inspection of various food junctions by their food inspectors. It has been indicated that there is a resource crunch in the FSSAI and state food authorities which needs to be fulfilled in order to have experienced and efficient technical staff. In this way, the public health of India can be improved efficiently.
