FSSAI to reward whistleblowers exposing food adulteration

The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) has laid down a trap to intercept manufacturers involved in production or marketing of adulterated food items.

To encourage inflow of information from all stakeholders regarding adulterated/unsafe food, the FSSAI has proposed to introduce a scheme of rewards for whistleblowers and informants from the funds being made available to the state governments under a Centrally Sponsored Scheme.

In this regard, Section 95 of the Food Safety and Standards Act, 2006, has a provision for rewards to be given to the whistleblowers who provide any relevant information on food adulteration.
