Welcoming the guest, Vice Chancellor Dr Harsh Sadawarti, said, “Our body is healthy if we eat healthy. The basic human growth also depends upon the quality of food we eat. The educated and smart youth can be accountable for safety of food products right from the production till the consumption.”


While interacting with the students Simon Dawson said, “There is an immediate need of food safety by food producing companies. They must have regular customer updates, communicate with customers and having clear their doubts. Focus on case studies as it highlights the failures, study about food related crime and focus on prerequisite programmes. The food safety industry is flourishing and needs youth. This particular stream needs intelligent young minds to get trained in safeguarding the eatable items prepared.”
