In collaboration with the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI), the new Food Safety Customer Solution Center will focus on meeting and exceeding the demands of scientists in food and beverage laboratories by developing critical workflows and integrated solutions that help build food safety capacity in India.

With the food and beverage industry committed to making what we consume healthier and safer, the Thermo Fisher Customer Solution Center will serve as a regional hub for scientists, partners and the FSSAI to collaborate with subject matter experts. The skilled analysts at the Center will focus on development, training and support for next-generation workflows and integrated solutions across chromatography and mass spectrometry, in collaboration with the FSSAI.

"The Center helps us realize our mission of enabling our customers to make the world healthier, cleaner and safer."

"The new Center is uniquely placed to help scientists, partners and regulatory bodies, like the FSSAI, collaborate to increase food safety and quality, while expanding capacity and productivity of food testing in the region."

"We welcome the establishment of this world class Center and see it as a tremendous benefit in the capacity building of food analyst and technical staff of the food safety authorities, both at the government of India and at the State level. By collaborating in this manner, we build the future generations of analysts as this will be a very significant contribution to the cause of food safety in India," said Rita Teaotia, chairperson, FSSAI.

"The FSSAI establishes science-based standards for articles of food and regulates their manufacture, storage, distribution, sale and import to ensure availability of safe and wholesome food to the country's 1.3 billion citizens," said Pawan Agarwal, chief executive officer, FSSAI.
