There is no denying that many agro-based primary and processed food in Bangladesh are being heavily contaminated by harmful pesticides and other chemicals during production and/or post-harvest processing, storage and transportation phases. Produced food are also being adulterated by range of various harmful chemicals and offered to consumers in unhygienic conditions. There is growing concerns among both the government and citizens and become extremely sensitive to the issue. The Government has enacted laws and constituted regulatory body to regulate and monitor reduction of such practices. However, the adulteration and contamination are still remain across the value chain due to various factors. Likewise, indiscriminate use of chemical fertilizer and application of harmful pesticides are polluting the environment, damaging the soil bio-diversity, killing useful insects, polluting water resources and harming life bellow water, etc. Human health is being compromised and there are incidences of more diseases linked to harmful pesticides, other contaminants and adulterants. This has to stop immediately.
