FSSAI to upgrade laboratories


New Delhi: The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) is planning to partner with private companies to upgrade the infrastructure of its laboratories and run them.

Besides, the country’s food regulator has allocated 500 crore for the upgradation and modernization of state government-owned laboratories over the next 2-3 years, FSSAI chief executive Pawan Kumar Agarwal said.

While two central laboratories in Kolkata and Ghaziabad are owned by FSSAI, state governments own 82 laboratories. “We are now trying to revive our Ghaziabad laboratory, which is almost defunct, through a public-private partnership (PPP) arrangement,” said Agarwal.
