Gujarat Food and Drug Control Administration has planned training sessions on April 23 and 24, 2011, in Gandhinagar.

The training session on April 23 would involve imparting awareness on food safety to consumer forums, social organisations and NGOs.

The FDCA will aim at sensitising these groups on various food safety aspects, grievance redressal procedures and provide a demo on the use of food-testing kits. These kits, FDA claims, could lessen the burden of food inspectors and by these forums conduct small tests, like identifying water in milk, non-edible item in oil and non-edible colours in sweets. The Administration aims to distribute these free of cost.

“By educating these bodies we may be able to reach masses at large,” said H G Koshia, commissioner, FDCA, Gujarat.

The training on April 24 would focus on public prosecutors who represent the government in food adulteration cases. “We will sensitise them on the most common causes of acquittals and how adulterators resort to chasing loopholes in law to setting themselves free. This would help tame such miscreants and have more number of convictions,” said Koshia.
