In order to stay fit, people make many healthy choices. Increasing the intake of healthy proteins, good fats and carbs are sure a great way forward, but we all know that even the grilled chicken on your plate is no good, if it is not of good quality or adulterated. Food safety is often not given the due it deserves. Food adulteration has become one of the biggest challenges of the modern world. Our fruits, poultry, dairy, vegetables, even the water that we consume are often laden with disease causing adulterants. In such a scenario, it is essential to spread maximum awareness about food safety. Consuming food that is not certified safe, may result in food poisoning and some life-threatening disorders.
To raise awareness around the pressing concern, Equinox Labs is conducting 'Food Safety Month', which is aimed towards making food safety a crucial aspect in manufacturing units, hotels, schools and hospitals.
