FBOs, corporates and individuals alike, joined us from across India. The results, were beyond anybody's expectations. Over the last four seasons, the campaign impacted more than 14,000 businesses, engaged more than 35,000 participants and over 50,000 downloads of Food Safety Month resources were noted.Over the years with Food Safety Month on the go, a drastic change in the attitude of the the food companies has been observed. We have come across many food units who have prioritized Food Safety, Good Hygiene Practices and Good Quality Standards for the consumers.With the idea of giving a recognition to these companies, Food Safety Awards, which came into existence in 2017, saw the light of the day even this year.
