In a step towards enhancing the user experience and accessibility, the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) has launched the Food Safety Compliance System (FoSCoS) portal in multiple regional languages. The portal is now available in Gujarati, Tamil, Telugu, and Marathi, apart from Hindi and English, with plans to launch the portal in Kannada, Punjabi, Malayalam, Assamese, Bengali and Odia soon.
The latest advancement aims to enhance the user experience for local food businesses, allowing them to easily connect with the FSSAI’s online compliance portal i.e. FoSCoS. This effort is envisioned to empower a wider range of users, fostering increased participation and enhancing overall compliance within the food ecosystem. FoSCoS launched nationwide in the year 2020, has rapidly evolved into a pivotal platform for food businesses and regulatory authorities, streamlining all compliance-related activities. The system has played a pivotal role in the digital transformation of various food safety processes, simplifying adherence to regulatory norms for food businesses nationwide.
