Emergence of New Fads:
One such is these days it is Organic Foods and Vegetables, Fruits , Baked items ,Grains ,Lentils, Millet's and so on and on . So it is a vast Ocean we are plunging in to ; that too in the right time when the unscrupulous have entered the fray in a big way.
The research has been going on in the field of Food and Agriculture
* to offer nutritious , hygienic , healthy food with least pesticides .
* Farmer to get better price & benefitted
* Cut middle men exploiting - Now middle men themselves seem to have got into this, making it a laughing stock
* Make indigenous food available in India to prevent dependence on other countries .
Good so many have voiced their concerns about the quality of cooked as well as Organic products
# It is here that FSSAI has a major role to play . People depend solely on their honest , tireless approach towards all the questions raised not only on quality but also pricing ,shelf life . They have to raise up to the expectations of the people.
# Pricing and costing :There is a pricing mechanism also in practice I suppose for Large, Medium and Small Industries. This is followed by a mark up from the cost of basic raw material .
When we have complains of overcharging on MRP there are also instances of super markets underselling from MRP to the tune of 20 to 25 %. How is it possible ? Instead straight away reduce the MRP TO 20% less limit. Very true of all cooking oils. So the pricing is not at all realistic.
BUT A NEW CULTURE IS DEVELOPING IN INDIA WHERE THE HIGH EARNING WANT TO BE A CUT ABOVE THE REST IN ALL FADS MENTIONED EARLIER READY PAY ANY AMAOUNT .
THE REST NEEDN’T FOLLOW THEIR EXAMPLE.
Solution :Go to dealers rather than the stores ,I found the price to be 40 % less and genuine As I use Millet's for food and cold pressed oils . more
