The present era, is driven by consumers for consumers. Consumers prefer high-quality, convenient and tasteful variety of foods with longer shelf life. Consumers look out for quality led to ‘Creation of demand for high quality food throughout the food Chain from farm to palate’. Along with this demand, there is an increase in tendency to eat a greater variety of foods both traditional and conventional to exotic and unconventional. Hence, the role of government has become pivotal in order to ensure safe food to the consumers while ensuring food safety all through the distance food travels from farm to palate. A food supply chain or food system refers to the processes that describe how food from a farm ends up on our tables. The processes include production, processing, distribution, consumption and disposal, various food laws that regulates its production, processing and distribution. The food we eat reaches us via food supply chains through which food moves systematically from producers to consumers. Every stage of the supply chain requires human and/or natural resources hence if one part of the food supply chain is affected; the whole food supply chain is affected, leading to changes in price or even black marketing as commonly seen in the prices of onion and pulses.
