Earlier, Union Minister Piyush Goyal on Monday asked the Quality Council of India to strive to bring about a convergence of all the various quality and standards organisations in the country. He asked the industry to ensure that their products meet international quality standards and help build ‘Brand India’.
The minister, who was addressing an event organised by the Quality Council of India (QCI), called for convergence of various quality certification related organisations such as FSSAI, the BIS, the Rail or Defense establishments.
The FSSAI has requested all competent authorities of exporting countries to provide the list of existing manufacturers and those who intended to export these food products to India. Based on information provided by them, the FSSAI will register these facilities on its portal.
