Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) has launched a national campaign ‘The Eat Right Movement’ to improve public health and fight against bad lifestyle diseases.

FSSAI also launched the Eat Right tool kit and Safe and Nutritious Food at Workplace campaign.

About The Eat Right Movement

‘The Eat Right Movement' campaign is a voluntary and collaborative movement built on two broad pillars viz “Eat Healthy and “Eat Safe”. It is a collective effort to encourage people towards making right food and dietary choices. It focuses on both sides- demand and supply side to come together.

On the demand side, it focuses on empowering citizens to make the right food choices. On the supply side, it requests food businesses to reformulate their products, provide better nutritional information to consumers and make investments in healthy food as responsible food businesses.

Under this campaign, FSSAI has asked industry to voluntarily reduce salt, sugar and saturated fat in packaged food products. The edible oil industry, bakeries, halwais and FMCG companies, including Nestle India, HUL and Patanjali have taken a pledge to reduce the level of salt, sugar, and fat in food products.
