Abstract

The question arises is, are consumer safe in this world in relation with food adulteration. In India to curb with this problem The Prevention of Food Adulteration Act, 1954 was enacted. The object envisaged in this legislation was to ensure pure and  wholesome food to consumers and also to prevent fraud or deception. In 2006 the act was amended and seeing to the social conditions Food Safety and Standards Act, 2006 came into existence. The concept of human right emerged along with the rest of contemporary international human rights law in the aftermath of World war – II. The right to food was initially codified in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Article 25(1). Food adulteration is a major blockage in the implementation of laws in the society. Food should be free from adulteration then only we can say it is properly implemented.
