Food Safety: Concept and Reality

S.N. Mahindru (Author)

There is no doubt that several commentaries on the PFA Act, 1954 and its Rules, 1955 are there. All these are from the litigative and judicial angles. Techno-analytical aspect and its implications have never been discussed despite their major role in the enforcement of the above Act and its Rules. The result being that the malady of safe and pure food still exists. Several tasks forces, comprising the best legal luminary of the country, constituted by the Government have given their recommendations, but these are also from the administrative / legal angles. The techno-legal implication which are the base of the Act and its rules still remained unattended. Several decisions on food adulteration cases have been divergent thus preventing the emergence of a clear position of law on several important aspects of food purity and safely. “Food Safety – Concept and Reality” is understood to be the first publication of its kind where the above maladies have been critically scanned, analysed interpreted from the techno-analytical angles and suggestions have been made. These have the implicit concurrence of the former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of India.
