New Delhi, Oct 12 (Calcutta Tube) Popular eating joints in the capital will soon have their food tested for safety by mobile labs of London-based food quality certification agency TQS Global Management System.
As part of the Safe Food Destination (SFD) being run by the agency during the ongoing Commonwealth Games, a mobile testing van will go to eating places in areas like Khan Market, Dilli Haat, Chandni Chowk and Karol Bagh to check quality of food being served.
‘The lab will conduct tests to check adulteration in dairy products. It is also equipped to conduct antibiotic residue tests, pesticide residue test, alergen monitoring tests, water tests and a few microbiological tests,’ said N.L.B. Pantulu, vice president (operations) of TQS Global.
The agency has been authorised by the Food Safety Standard Authority of India (FSSAI) to issue certification to eateries.
