FURNISHING INFORMATION on LABEL of PACKAGED and REPACKED FOODS :
The mandatory information for the Customer and Authorities on contents, weight, MRP, Manufacturing Date, Expiry / Use before, and the contact information of Manufacturer are must.
The standard information on the label is printed in thousands of labels. The variable information on MRP, Date etc are stamped after the product is manufactured, Repacked and before being sent to the market.
If you take a look at the attached picture, it indicates “see the bottom” and the required information is stamped at the bottom. If you look at the date the MFD was Jan2021 (for the one which customer had to look at the bottom)and the later ones May 2021. THAT CLEARLY SHOWS THAT ALL THE COMPLAINTS ARE ANALYSED AND ACTION BEGINNING TO BE TAKEN AND EFFECTS ARE BEING FELT. – This may be by some companies only, or supplied to some establishments like Defence , CGHS etc. – So it is good to be alert on all companies, and all over supplies.
Further the H.C. has also directed the Food Safety Dept. to come up with a “MODULE ON HYGIENIC PRACTICES TO BE FOLLOWED BY THE FOOD INDUSTRY”. This should put to rest all the doubts in our minds. - All the same we customers should be alert and come out with short cummings and suggestions now and then to see that the Dept. doesn’t become complacent and the Trader/ Manufacturer continues to follow safe practices and assure safe Food. more
