PITB has collaborated with the Punjab Food Authority to launch a ‘Smart Food Licensing System’ to facilitate food business operators in applying for a license. The app validates requests for new food licenses after field visits and conducts inspections on public complaints. The system is also integrated with a banking platform in order to monitor financial transactions related to license fee and fine payments. Since the launch of the Smart Food Licensing System, over Rs. 44 million have been collected against food license fee payments. Information/indicators that are recorded include site maps, cnic, name of food business, checklist that contains employee medical certificates, safety measures etc, and owner photo and business category type.
