In India, the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI)  is the apex food regulatory body. Food standards are essential for ensuring the quality of the food to maintain hygiene and to prevent adulteration. A study was conducted among the veterinary students of the Madras Veterinary College. A simple random sampling was adopted for the selection of 50 respondents including B.V.Sc and M.V.Sc students. The collected data were tabulated and analyzed in order to achieve the objectives of the study. Analytical tools including descriptive statistics, multiple linear regression were used. Even though thorough knowledge about food standards were not there, overall performance showed that veterinary students were aware about the food standards prevailing in India. The particular year of study of students, age of students, employment status of the guardian, education of family members were positively correlated with the knowledge level of veterinary students on food quality standards in India.

Keywords: Food -food standards- food quality- veterinary students.
