losse sweets having best before date can be implemented
FSSAI is bringing in a new rule where shops have to indicate manufacturing and expiry date of non-packaged sweets at display counters the rule that currently applies only to packaged sweets.
while its a good idea, one way it can be implemented in practicality is if stickers with date of mfg and best before are applied when they place the sweets in the display counter.
In addition they should have a process where all sweets that havent sold and closed to expiry date/time are sold at a discount or disposed off.
currently many small sweet shops keep selling stuff days after its expired, knowingly.
many of indians eat so much risky food its hard to figure out what made us sick. more
Good idea. however, resistance & doubts are emerging from the sweet sellers. more
But, the reality is - almost full quantity of the unsold sweets ( which are prone to get soured or develop off-flavour) are transformed to another kind of sweet! Modus operandi are quite marvel. 'Malai panra' are converted to another kind of panra which are brown in colour and heavily scented with jaiphal (nutmeg). Sweet commerce has bounty of 'sour notes' and 'bitter notes'. more
Even the "Best Before" date should get printed on the Cash Memo/ Bill. more
No doubt, it's a good idea, but the small sweet meat manufacturers first should be registered with proper address and manufacturing establishments detail. Otherwise such attempt won't be successful. besides experts and inspectors should appointed to inspect that sweets manufacturing is process is complying with all norms and food standards. That will make the system totally leak proof. more
