List of FSMS-Certification Bodies in India

Food Safety Management System briefly known as FSMS is not very well implemented in India. Most of the packed food products food in the local markets are coming from the unorganised sector without any assurance for safety. While some companies are getting AGMARK certification for the quality of the product  in India which will be discussed in the next post. Products which are exported get the approval for food safety from APEDA- Agricultural and Processed Food Products Export Development Authority. Also products which are exported are getting certified for HACCP and other required standards like IFS, BRC, AIB etc., based on the importing country.
