India: Few takers for food safety authorities’ registration drive?

The registration drive by the apex food regulator, the Food Safety Standard Authority of India, to regulate food industry under the new food regulation has remained a non-starter.

Just around 23 lakh out of five crore food business operators in the country have enrolled under the legislation in the last one year.
