The Bangladesh National Parliament has passed the Food Safety Act, 2013 on October 10, 2013 (after repealing and re-enacting the existing outdated laws in this regards) in order to make provisions for the establishment of an efficient, effective, scientifically based Authority and for regulating, through coordination, the activities relating to food production, import, processing, stockpiling, supplying, marketing and sales as well as to ensure the people’s right toward access to safe food through appropriate application of scientific processes and state of the art technology.

In order to meet the aspirations of the citizens of the country it was felt to be desirable to ensure their rights towards access to safe food for the protection of human health and life. Obligated by the citizens’ aspirations and being respectful towards the present government’s desire, the Bangladesh Food Safety Authority, which has been set up on February 2, 2015, is committed to make a united start with its full strength and unstinting efforts. The Authority whole-heartedly welcomes the all out support of all food control agencies, food business operators and people of the country towards the landmark goal of establishing a Modern and Technological Food Safety System in Bangladesh to contribute to the government’s Vision 2021.
