May be a food cess, like swatch bharat cess, may be helpful to have better inspection of food offered in the market. A new cess will provide funds to the concerned department to have more staff and do better. Since every service is chargeable now, let us have this too. more  
There are thousands of laws on Food Control act with hardly any enforcement . Fact is that almost 80 % of food items are sold through road side eateries , Dhabas , rarhries , hawkers where there is just zero inspection w.r.t. how and where stuffs are made and served . They playing with health of the people and the officials are simply sleeping . more  
food inspection offices family may also using these type of product. If some rule to be made and given a target 1 issue reporting every day/ 10 inspection every day. All are coming in line. Target based achievement and performance makes a person/group perfect. more
