The session aims to help stakeholders in the food industry, particularly hoteliers and restaurant owners. 

Food safety is a major health issue in India. The issue faces a challenge to feed a large and geographically diverse population of the country. Maintaining a strict food safety policy is important because its implementation leads to a consistent standard of food being served. 

Dr Arora will speak on emerging food trends, including food startups and online food retailing. This will address budding entrepreneurs who want to make most out of the takeaway model of ordering food. He will speak about the process of starting tomorrow’s food business.  

Adhering to top class food safety standards in the hospitality sector is an important issue. If left unchecked, it may cost hoteliers and restaurateurs several lakhs in fines. Besides the fines, it also damages the company’s reputation and brand loyalty that may take years to recover.       

The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) plays an important role to formulate and control procedures. It implements and controls food quality processes so as to eliminate hazardous and toxic elements. Right from checking the ingredients for preparation to the final packaging, everything is done under the eyes of FSSAI.

Dr. Arora will also talk about food licensing, another important issue that involves the entire food industry. He will speak about specific food safety challenges.

The session will include stakeholders from the food industry, food manufacturers and processors, hotel and restaurant owners, startup operators, online food retailers and representatives of food laboratories.
