Parting note
Speaking to FnB News about his experience as FSSAI’s CEO, Mohanty said, “Great moments are created out of great opportunities. I was lucky to be part of it for brief while. All of us who stay with FSSAI are expected to create these great moments. Great opportunities are lying there. But crafting great moments out of there opportunities, is not an easy task if not possible. But amazing people do it all the time,” the outgoing CEO added.

Mohanty said, “To top it, amazing people are not born, but they just decide to stay the course, stick to their job and rise to an amazing level. When the temptation will be to do the work and get done with it, they are the ones who see a greater communion with their work, the work as it relates to society, fairness of life, and indivisibilty of goal will see a higher purpose and that is the course to great achievement.”

He added, “The field we deal with requires a myriad skill-set, in-depth knowledge and a stirring conscience. This means teams will be required without fail rather than individuals. Individuals will have to work with team spirit without losing sight of the super-ordinate goal of providing safe food to 1.2 billion people. This is a journey which involves FSSAI, the states, the industry, all FBO’s, consumer activists and citizens.”
