The Indian food regulator, Food Safety and Standards Authority of India,
has decided to conduct a pan-India surveillance of food products and
floated tender inviting bids for the same. The survey was required to
ascertain the quality of food products sold across the country for their
conformity with standards set by the FSSAI.

According to the FSSAI, the pan-India surveillance of food products was
needed to find out the extent of non-confirmation with respect to
contaminants and adulterants adversely affecting the quality & safety of
food products and to arrive at the root cause of the problem.

“It includes regular surveillance on variety of food products i.e. spices,
jaggery, tea, vegetables, fruits etc.,” reads the FSSAI statement.

The country-wide survey would include big cities, districts, tehsils with
an option to add-up to 25% more numbers of places.

The last date for submission of bid documents was Oct 21, 2021, 3:00 PM. FSSAI stated that the bids under the two bid system (Technical Bid & Commercial Bid) should be submitted on the government's e-procurement portal by the due date and time.

After the award of tender, the draft report based on the lab analysis would
be submitted within 35 days after the picking up of samples followed by the final report after submission of the draft report. The release of the final report would be done in next one week.
