Standards for food apps packaging
I very strongly request BIS to come up with mandatory packaging material standards for hot restaurant food. FSSAI is giving licenses but food inspectors are clueless about packaging.
Can we get urgent action please and till this happens, must call the restaurant if u must order through such apps or with restaurants. more
I suggest this because I've experienced hot edible food being supplies by restaurants and other eateries in plastic packages for instant eating or even for take-aways.....in Europe and also in the Americas including many Asian countries.
We Indians should also not stand out in making mountains of mole hills..... more
(1) Food Makers supply the same in returnable containers/tiffin carriers(Stainless Steel or Aluminium) - against a refundable deposit, as was for glass-bottled beverages, before the advent of PET in bottlings.
(2) Supplies to be made in aluminium foil bags, with outer bags made of polythene or polypropylene or other plastic materials. Quite a few food suppliers have already adopted this mode of packing.
(3) Innovations can be made for tetra-pack like packings at the spot of packing such food items. more
