Before starting on the main topic I would like to tell you something about the FSSAI institution and its internship program.
Fssai is a statutory body as well as an executive body under the ministry of health and family welfare. FSSAI was formed under the FSSAI act 2006. its headquarter in New Delhi and there are 6 other regional offices in India like Delhi, Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Cochin, Chennai, and Guwahati in India. This institution is responsible for the supervision and laying down the framework of rules and regulations for public health and food security. It is the highest level of authority for enacting and implementation of rules and norms. FSSAI issues a license to the food manufacturers to run their business in the market. So we talked about the FSSAI and its operations in the field of food marketing.

First of all, we will discuss the FSSAI internship scheme program, after this, the eligibility criteria for the internship program. So let’s go to the topic.
FSSAI internship is a 3 to 6 months program that provides the interns with the learning opportunity in sorts of areas of food regulation and food safety administration but they do not offer less than a one-month internship.
The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India invites the interns for the FSSAI internship scheme, in which they enjoy the various opportunities in the food sector.
who are eligible for the FSSAIs internship :
candidates who are pursuing full-time graduation, post-graduation degree or any other higher education from a recognized institute as it is within the country or out of the country in any of the following courses like candidates who are pursuing their third and fourth year PG degree or Btech or BE from an institute or recognized university in biotechnology, food science and technology, food and nutrition, chemistry, Edible oil technology, public health, life sciences, horticulture sciences, toxicology, and industrial microbiology, etc. are eligible for this internship program scheme.
Now we will talk about what the interns need for these internship schemes. so the interns are required to use laptops only. and the working space, internet connections, and other facilities will be provided by the FSSAIs.
one more thing is there are no facilities for lodging and for travel, interns have to manage it.
A stipend is provided to the deserving interns by the FSSAIs which is of rs 10000 but by the prior recommendation of the office or the sector they work with.
After the successful completion of the internship, all the interns are awarded a certificate.
Elaborately I discussed the FSSAIs internship program, now it is all about the conclusion that the FSSAI not only frames the laws and issues the license but also it provides a good opportunity to the candidates who have a keen interest in this field. FSSAI is not only the regulator but also provides career to the candidates by providing the FSSAI internship program.
