Looking forward to the festival season the government has taken a big decision on the loose sweets items sold in sweet shops all over the country. As per the decision, shops have to mention the manufacturing date on the loose sweets packets and dessert too.
Government took this decision in order to put a hold on the adulterated food items being sold to the customers during the festive season.
The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI), the central body that determines the quality of foods, has now issued an order for sweets sold in shops at the open. According to the order, it will be mandatory to write manufacturing date as well as the best before date on the same container or the container in which sweets are kept. The date of formation and damage must be written in such a way that it is clearly visible to the customers.
This order will come into effect from June 1 this year. The FSSAI has set a possible time limit for the spoilage of all milk-made sweets, which traders will have to follow. Food Safety Commissioners of all states have been asked to strictly follow the new rule.
