Food Safety com­pli­ance for startup busi­nesses is ex­tremely im­por­tant. Food pro­duc­tion is mon­i­tored care­fully due to the sig­nif­i­cance of the con­se­quences of poor food hy­giene. While in­no­vat­ing and ideat­ing new con­cepts, it is vi­tal that star­tups start out on the right track with com­plete knowl­edge of food safety com­pli­ance.

In a can­did conversation be­tween the pol­icy mak­ers, food reg­u­la­tors and startup en­trepreneurs, In­dia Food Fo­rum’s last ses­sion cen­tered around the ease of do­ing busi­ness and sug­gested ways to make the reg­u­la­tory frame­work more stream­lined and how the food op­er­a­tors can avoid trip­ping up on safety guide­lines.
