    World Food Day: Food Safety Standard Authority Of India Launches An Online Platform To Reduce Food Waste

    Using personalised logins, donors can track the status of the food they had donated

    New Delhi: In a bid to reduce food waste, the Food Safety Standard Authority of India (FSSAI) today launched an integrated web-based platform which will allow people to share their surplus meal with those in need. The Indian Food Recovery Alliance (IFRA) initiative will guide citizens and food recovery agencies on ways to prevent food loss and also how to safely recover the surplus food.

    The platform allows donors, individuals and volunteers to register themselves under the initiative. The donors will be able to track the status of the food they had donated, using personalised logins.

    “It is not enough that food is available but the food should be nutritious as well,” Union Minister of State for Health Ashwini Choubey said at the national ‘Conclave on Nutrition Security: Partnership and Convergence’ organised by the FSSAI on the occasion of World Food Day today.

    He emphasised the need to raise awareness about nutritious food and cautioned people against adulteration.

    Mr. Ashwini Choubey released a report on ‘Large Scale Food Fortification in India – The Journey So Far and Road Ahead’. He also launched a food fortification website at the function.
