Edible oil industry, bakery and FMCG companies, including Nestle India, HUL and Patanjali, have committed to reduce the level of salt, sugar and fat in food products.

In order to start and popularize this campaign, FSSAI has taken a short video to film actor Rajkumar Rao who encourages common people to eat salt, sugar and fat less. The video will be broadcast on television channels and will be broadcast via social media including other mass media.

FSSAI CEO Pawan Kumar Agarwal said on the occasion of the launch of this movement, "We have come with a draft of food labeling regulation which is currently with the health ministry." On this occasion, top executives of Nestle India, Patanjali and HUL He said, "It will take at least one year to arrive in its operation.
