DrHarshVardhanOfficeUnion Health Minister Dr Harsh Vardhan has urged the people to adopt healthy and balanced food habits. He also stressed the need to check the food waste in the country.

The Minister was addressing a function organized by Food Safety and Standards Authority of India on first-ever World Food Safety Day here today. On this occasion, Minister of State for Health, Ashwini Choubey applauded FSSAI’s efforts of building an Eat Right India through peoples’ participation and highlighted the message of ‘Eat Local, Eat Less.

During the event, representatives from Central and State Government, Food Businesses, Higher Education Institutes and NGOs joined hands in propagating the message of safe food habits. Dr Harsh Vardhan unveiled a statue of Mahatma Gandhi on a bicycle which symbolizes Swach Bharat Yatra.

The first-ever World Food Safety Day adopted by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations is aimed at creating awareness among the people about food safety.

This year’s theme is Food Safety, Everyone’s Business. An estimated 600 million cases of foodborne diseases occur annually worldwide. Unsafe food is a threat to human health and economies, disproportionately affecting vulnerable and marginalized people, especially women and children, populations affected by conflict and migrants. In this scenario, food safety has become an impending concern.
