FSSAI realizes that “if safe and wholesome food to every Indian citizen is to be ensured on a sustainable basis, then reliance only on traditional regulatory tools like standards, enforcement, and compliance would not suffice. so, they have to actively work towards Social and behavioural change”.

On this Philosophy, FSSAI started project SNF (safe and Nutritious Food) and adopts a 360-degree approach for citizen guidance and behavioural change in every sphere like at home, school, workplace, or eating out.

The Purpose of starting SNF is to build awareness and capacity building to create a culture of consuming safe and wholesome food and build a mind of people that safe and nutritious food has to be a way of life.
