Understanding the Distinction: FPO vs FSSAI

While both the Food Processing Order (FPO) and the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) play crucial roles in regulating the food industry, they operate in distinct spheres. FPO focuses on specific essential commodities, laying down processing standards and ensuring quality, while FSSAI takes a more comprehensive approach, covering a wide range of food products and establishing unified standards for safety and quality. Understanding the distinction between these two entities is essential for businesses in the food sector to ensure compliance with the relevant regulations and contribute to a safer and healthier food ecosystem in India.
