Printing and Dissemination of Awareness Material such as the Orange Book, Pink Book and the DART Book in workplaces.

We spend the majority of our time at the workplace and consume at least one meal there. A key step towards ensuring good health and wellness is to ensure that you eat safe and nutritious food, everywhere, at all times, even at the workplace. This means eating food that is safe, free from adulterants, clean and hygienic, following healthy eating patterns, choosing nutritious food, eating a balanced diet, being active and getting adequate rest and relaxation.
        The first step towards following these healthy practices is awareness. In this regard, FSSAI has developed the Orange Book, which is a guide for workplaces. This book contains best practices to be followed by the canteen establishment to ensure safety of food, tips for employees on how to eat safe and nutritious food at work and remain healthy and guidance for the administration to create an enabling environment and ensure safe and nutritious food for the employees.


In addition, FSSAI has also released two general practical guides. One is a simple, easy to follow guide on food safety and good nutrition practices at home, called The Pink Book. It contains several useful tips, information nuggets, dos and don'ts to ensure that we consume safe and nutritious food at home. The other is a manual on over 40 simple tests that can be conducted at home to detect common adulterants in food items, called the DART Book. These books can be given to employees to use at home.
