Madhu Chauhan and Govind Murari Upadhyay


Nanotechnology has emerged as a potential remedy for human-related challenges associated with sustainable living, addressing essential necessities and desires. These fundamental human needs encompass sustenance, water, energy, attire, housing, well-being, and hygienic surroundings. Over the past three decades, dedicated endeavours by scientists and engineers have yielded notable advancements across diverse domains such as agriculture, culinary technology, water purification, automotive, energy retention, beauty products, textiles, and construction materials. This paper underscores the utilization of nanotechnology within the food sector, where it has demonstrated its efficacy in ensuring food safety, innovating food packaging, and enhancing food processing. Additionally, the Indian government is actively pursuing constructive measures to facilitate the integration of nanotechnology into the nation’s framework, displaying a welcoming stance towards startups and their involvement in this transformative field.
