Provide safe anti-cockroach and anti-rodent sprays in all food districts of cities, towns, villages and busy bus stand / railway areas. more  
1. Use of artificial ripening agents is rampant as per a farmer who met me
2. Quality of water used in agriculture
3. Restaurants are unhygenic. more  
In India, there are lot many street vendors who cook Veg ad Non veg foods, the sorrounding environment are so shabby that most of the health Inspectors Ignore, most of the street vendors should be updated with Hygiene or they should scale it up into small restaurants or fast foods, more  
you know I was wondering since PM Modi said he will create employment, the easiest method is to hire persons for such government policy enforcement work. Obviously there arent enough food inspectors to go around. Maybe put more people officials on ground with area wise segregation so they are responsible and accountable and to whom reports of violation can be made by the general public. more  
India should be a leader in banning unsafe pesticides. It should also be a leader in promoting organic forming reducing dependence on chemical fertilizers and pesticides. more
