About Event  | Concept Note


The food industry is one of the largest industries in India in terms of production, consumption, export and expected growth. Food can become contaminated at any point during preparation, processing, storage, distribution, or transportation. Everyone in the food production chain needs to maintain food hygienic as that prevents harmful bacteria from contaminating food. One of the biggest factors leading to food borne illnesses is cross contamination from the hands of the food service employees. There must be adequate washing facilities including hand washing facilities and toilets for staff, adequate ventilation, lighting, proper drainage and waste disposal and a separate storage area for cleaning agents and disinfectants.
 
The Government of India has launched the Swachh Bharat Mission (Clean India Campaign) that covers both rural and urban India. The Mission aims to make India a clean country by promoting sanitation in its widest sense. This means ensuring overall cleanliness, hygiene behavior, water, toilets and their use.
 
To discuss and promote hygiene practices in food industry, in collaboration with Ministry of Food Processing Industries, along with Stakeholders across, ASSOCHAM is organizing “Interactive Session on Swachchta in Food Processing Sector" on 13th September, 2019 at 09.30 am in ASSOCHAM House,  5 Sardar Patel Marg, Chanakyapuri, New Delhi 110021.
