Testing of food products at different levels of supply chain is a critical activity in the entire food safety compliance eco system to ensure that only products, which comply with the Act and regulations are sold in the market. FSS Act, 2006 gives authority to food safety officer to draw samples which are intended for sale or human consumption. Act has also mandated FSSAI to notify laboratories from time to time for testing of various food products in the country.
Currently testing is being done by state and private labs across the country, however, the test reports are not available to FSSAI in real time. The reports are only made available in physical form upon request which makes it impossible to keep this data for future reference.
“INFoLNET is an initiative with bringing all the stakeholders to a common platform for the establishment of a transparent food testing network,” stated FSSAI. While several demonstrations and training programmes have been conducted by the apex food regulator across the country, it rued that despite these, many labs failed to connect with the system.
“The Indian Food Laboratory Network (INFoLNET) is a new platform deployed by FSSAI, with a view to ensure a streamlined and transparent food testing network among all the testing laboratories.”
“The benefits of the portal can be multitude. For the food businesses, all the testing laboratories shall have the same results. For the testing labs, each shall be linked by the type and number of testing services benefiting the clients, while this will be an added barrier of protection for consumers, in terms of food safety. What’s better is that this is mandatory for each laboratory, like food safety training and certification (FoSTaC) is for food businesses.”
