The five-year-old Nestlé Research and Development (R&D) Centre India recently set up its first Food Safety Institute at Manesar, Gurugram, Haryana.

The Nestle Food Safety Institute (NFSI) was inaugurated by Pawan Kumar Agarwal, chief executive officer, Food Safety Standards Authority of India (FSSAI), and Suresh Narayanan, chairman and managing director, Nestlé India.  

The institute will be an integral part of, and will work closely with, the Nestlé R&D Centre India and the Nestlé Research Centre in Lausanne, Switzerland.

Its key objective of NFSI India is to build and share knowledge through collaborative partnerships for strengthening the food safety environment in India.

It has been established at the Nestlé R&D Centre India to develop a collaborative approach towards ensuring safe food.

NFSI India will conduct training programmes on food safety management systems (FSMS), testing methods and regulatory standards.

“We hope this institute will help meet India’s growing demand for safe and healthy food. I believe that there is a need for such institutes to spread awareness on safe and healthy food,” said Agarwal.  

Suresh Narayanan, chairman and managing director, Nestlé India, said, “The food safety environment in India is changing dynamically, and so are the consumers.”

“There is an increasing consciousness among them on the quality of food consumed,” he added.

“We, at Nestlé, strongly believe that food has a significant influence on our health, and there should be collaborative efforts between the regulatory bodies and the industry for catering to the health and safety of consumers,” Agarwal said.

“NFSI India will serve as the local interface of Nestlé’s global food safety and research capabilities and will leverage expertise in food safety science to collaborate with reputable academics, government agencies and research institutes in the country,” he added.

“The NFSI India laboratory is equipped with high-end analytical technology and is an integral part of the global network of food safety experts at Nestlé,” Agarwal said.

The Nestlé R&D Centre India is a part of Nestlé’s longstanding commitment and successful presence in India.
