Press Trust of India  |  New Delhi 

Food processing and packaging solutions provider Tetra Pak today launched 'Right to Keep Food Safe' awareness campaign on food safety, nutrition and packaging.

The company also released findings of food safety survey it commissioned, which highlighted low awareness among mothers towards ailments due to consumption of unsafe food and beverages and loss of nutritional content in food due to boiling.

Commenting on the survey findings, Tetra Pak (South Markets) Marketing Director Sumit Khatter said, "The survey shows that while mothers are quite concerned about the food and beverages they consume, there is a clear need for them to have easy access to better information and consequently exercising right choices."

Along with its awareness campaign, Tetra Pak has also launched an online course called Nutrition Quotient.

"Tetra Pak's vision is to make food safe and available everywhere for everyone through our aseptic processing and packaging technology which keeps food safe, right up to consumption," he added.

The food safety survey was conducted by Singapore-based Research Pacific on a sample size of 845 mothers in 8 cities in the country.
