Initiatives in the G-20 Global Food Regulators Summit 2023
The G-20 Global Food Regulators Summit means to address current and arising difficulties in food safety through a diverse range of activities. These include keynote addresses by international organizations and scientists, technical and plenary sessions with food regulators, interactive sessions with national and international stakeholders, and bilateral and multilateral meetings.
The G-20 Global Food Regulators Summit seeks to foster a cohesive network on food safety and regulatory aspects, promote compliance requirements understanding, and facilitate the exchange of best practices, experiences, and success stories.
The cooperation of food regulators from G-20 member countries highlights their dedication to enhancing food safety systems and regulatory frameworks. Renowned international organizations such as the World Health Organization (WHO), the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), and the Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (USA), among others, will contribute their expertise and perspectives to the discussions.
National stakeholders, including the Department of Commerce, the Ministry of Food Processing, and the Agricultural & Processed Food Products Export Development Authority (APEDA), will actively contribute to the G-20 Global Food Regulators Summit, demonstrating their commitment to ensuring safe and high-quality food for all.
The G-20 Global Food Regulators Summit will witness the launch of several groundbreaking initiatives designed to revolutionize the accessibility and sharing of food safety information. The Food-o-Copoeia, an extensive assortment of food category wise monographs, will act as a single point reference for applicable standards in specific product categories.
Another striking initiative is the common regulators platform called “SaNGRAH” (Safe food for Nations: Global Food Regulatory Authorities Handbook). This far reaching data set of Food Administrative Specialists from 76 nations overall will give significant data on mandates, food safety ecosystems, food testing facilities, and contact details. The SaNGRAH platform will be available in Hindi, English, and six Indian languages, further promoting inclusivity and accessibility.
The G-20 Global Food Regulators Summit will introduce a Common Digital Dashboard, an integrated IT portal providing comprehensive information on standards, regulations, notifications, advisories, guidelines, contamination limits, and the latest developments by food regulators in India.
