Food Minister Sadhon Chandra Majumdar calls for united efforts to ensure food safety

Access to safe food is the constitutional right of every citizen. The incumbent government is working to ensure food safety for the people of the country.

Food Minister Sadhan Chandra Majumdar came up with the statement while briefing reporters at the Expatriate Welfare Bhaban in the capital on Wednesday.

The monitoring system for ensuring safe food for the consumers has also been re-enforced by establishing district office of the Bangladesh Food Safety Authority (BFSA) in every district, he added.

To ensure food safety, the minister said there is no alternative of raising overall capacity of the BSFA, adding that so, the BFSA have to enhance their manpower expertise, their technical knowhow, training and institutional capacity.

The present government has enacted the Safe Food Act in 2013 and Bangladesh Food Safety Authority was founded on 2015.
