The seminar will focus on the role played by diet and nutrition in health and disease as these are the vital ingredients for healthier and prosperous world. The seminar will also try to assess the hazards and risks associated with consumption of contaminated food. This seminar will benefit the faculty by increasing their knowledge base and generating awareness about food safety and nutrition practices prevalent in our society and understanding the ways to improve the current practices. This process shall thus benefit the students of these faculties by in turn improving their understanding and motivating them towards the healthier practices for a safety conscious society. The agenda of the seminar is broad and we are conscious that there are gaps in knowledge among the faculties and students. An expert outlook is needed to answer questions of direct relevance to the food safety and nutrition.
