The Government of Balochistan recognizes the importance of food safety throughout the food supply chain. A positive food safety culture has been introduced and development through establishment of BFA which is committed to take all necessary steps and precautions, and exercising due diligence to protect and preserve the human food chain in the province. I hope that this organization will ensure availability of healthy and hygienic food to the consumers.
The importance of food safety and public health is undeniable. Food safety in the food chain is one of the key areas of focus in public health, because it affects people of every age, race, gender, and income level around the world. Unsafe food containing harmful bacteria, viruses, parasites, or chemical substances causes numerous diseases-ranging from diarrhea to cancers. Foodborne diseases contribute to premature mortality and low life expectancy specially child mortality and morbidity in Balochistan. Foodborne diseases can only be controlled through following SOPs and guidelines which are globally acknowledged. Islam, the religion of the majority of the country, has termed cleanliness as half of the faith. In Islam those who indulge in any kind of adulteration are exclude from the pale of Islam. Similarly the laws of the land prohibits manufacture and sale of unsafe food. Unfortunately many people in Pakistan have been involved in manufacturing and sale of unsafe food in utter disregard of provisions of the law and the religion
