For the training, experts were brought in from a leading food water and air testing company called the Equinox Lab. This training reports the publication has been made compulsory by the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI). “Popular food sites like the Khau Galli of Ghatkopar has hundreds of people visiting them everyday, the number sky rocketing to even thousands on a festive occasion.
