Congrats Food Circle
FSSAI has come up with the attached regulation yesterday. All imported foods now have to declare GM and non GM.
Kudos to all members. We must also get FSSAI management again in circles. Think there has been some changes recently. more
But in recent past some issues related to Cotton , Mustard n soyabeans were in thru the media.
Somewhere, it was also reported that some farmers have already started using it . If such cases are there, how our food ministry n FSSAI are going to check it.
Even the BT Cotton, were projected as very good for growing cotton but in many parts, the crops have failed due to certain types of insects, n caterpillars. If such BT COTTON seeds have gone to the oil millers n that edible oil is sold in the market, people might have consumed also. So how this latest promulgation of regulation is going to help, or check or control it.
These are some of the serious issues needs proper ,detail study, checks.
Jai Hind more
