Abstract: Indian food industry has played an indispensable part in Indian economy. With the advent of transportation, this sector has shown drastic development. Its scope is not limited to the country alone but has crossed the borders. So a number of regulations were framed to match Indian food labelling standards with international standards. With time various laws were introduced in the number of states to keep a check on the anti social elements. Purity, freshness and health seem to be compromised and adulteration of food stuffs became widespread. For the onslaught of food adulteration, a dire need for the Central legislation was felt which could bring with itself an era of hope and relief to the consumers (1). This hope was sustained by the bill that was passed in 1954 which replaced all local food adulteration laws and introduced The Prevention of Food Adulteration Act, 1954. The preamble of PFA emphasised only on prevention of food adulteration. Slowly its paradigm shifted to a more comprehensive approach by enlarging its parameters, thereby, including in its preview the countless Government ministries issuing separate orders at different points of time. It remained into place for almost five decades. On finding it overlapping and inconsistent, the new Act “Food Safety and Standards Act, 2006” was introduced that replaced PFA to meet the changing environment and rapid changing lifestyle of the people. It was designed with a purpose to eradicate duplication of orders and establishing single reference point feasible for all matters. FSSA is prevalent even today and working in the direction it was designed to work. Thus history of Indian pre-packaged food labelling has crossed a number of stages and an effort has been made to depict those stages through this study.
