Imported Foods Standards

Are there any standards that importers of foods are supposed to follow in terms of storage and shelf life management.

For example many packaged imported foods are supposed to be kept in refrigerator or controlled temperature but many Indian shops selling them shut their ac in night time and hence these foods loose nutritional value.

We end up buying them and many times the shopkeepers dont accept the returns atleast the ones in Delhi.

Like to hear from experts how this should be handled and if there are bis standards for the same and if they are mandatory or voluntary more

State govts are the least responsible persons and do not care unless they need money.
Ideally i would say fssai should have at least in each major city where they can take the grievances of the customers and act on these kind of issues when brought to their notice. more  
In food it is FSSAI regulations which apply equally to domestic production as to imports. Enforcement is with state govts. You can complain to state govt authorities. more  
yes implementation is very bad from fssai and it is high time they wake up from their deep slumber more  
Dear Rajeev Mittal: THERE ARE MANY MANY REGULATIONS GOVERNING SO MANY
MATTERS ON FOOD BY FSSAI BUT MY QUESTION HAS ALWAYS BEEN
" HOW MANY HAVE BEEN IMPLEMENTED..??.."...VERY FEW, MAYBE..!!.. FSSAI HAS
BEEN WEAK ON IMPLEMENTING OR ENFORCING MANY OF ITS OWN
RULES AND REGULATIONS REGARDING LOCALLY PRODUCED " EATABLES FOR SALE " AND
THE ONES IMPORTED INTO THE COUNTRY "FOR SALE"..!!.. more  
FSSAI Regulations are in place for import of food items and are complied with. visit www.fssai.gov.in more
