Welcome to the 30th edition of The Authentication Times.
In The Authentication Times, we continue to raise the issue of counterfeiting, which impacts the consumers and society by large. Our current edition focusses on the issue of milk adulteration in India. Managing food safety standards across a global supply chain is complex and challenging. However, steps must be taken to ensure safe and secure shipping,
and distribution of food products that end up in consumer's hands. To protect the 25 million babies born every year in India, it is essential to protect baby milk powders and other nutritional products from the scourge of counterfeiting.
According to a survey conducted by the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) in 2011, 68.4 of per cent milk served throughout the country was found adulterated, which itself defines the grim situation and calls for strict rules over fake and adulterated milk.
The cover story highlights this challenging issue in detail covering aspects such as its impact, consequences and how this menace can be tackled with the help of technology – adopting authentication, and track and trace solutions.
In this issue, you will also find a new section “Questions raised in the Indian Parliament related to counterfeiting and Answers by the Members of Parliament against these.” Other than this, you will also find our regular sections such as reports from FICCI CASCADE, News Bytes, Counterfeit Seizure Report and Events in this issue.
We thank you for your continual support and look forward to receive your feedback.
