The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) expressed its intention to release the standards for fortification of packaged foods in the country. FSSAI recently released food fortification standards for raw foods, including milk, salt, rice, wheat and edible oil.

According to FSSAI officials, the work on standards of fortification for packaged foods has started, and in a couple of months, the standards would be released to support the large-scale fortification programme in the country.

An officer said, “Consultations are on with the industry in this regard. FSSAI is also looking into the global norms in respect to fortification.”

Pledging his support, Bill Gates, co-chair and trustee, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, said, “The government is looking hard at food fortification – not only having standards but making these standards mandatory, starting with Vitamin A for cooking oil.”

This was stated during his lecture, which was a part of the National Institution for Transforming India (NITI) Aayog Transforming India lecture series.
