WHAT A FORESIGHT FROM FSSAI :ANYONE WILL GO OUT OF THE WAY TO APPRECIATE .
We have been discussing the labeling for the food products produced in posh and big Factories . Now this move to shift the focus into the LOCALLY MANUFACTURED SNACKS IS PRAISE WORTHY . All along the Scanner was only on the Snacks consumed by the posh segment . We have to be happy that it is shifting to the manufacturers and traders who supply to the poor section of the Society .
What I liked best for the reasoning of bringing in the new Practice is to make the shop keepers aware of the FIRST IN FIRST OUT POLICY . We have seen several petty shop owners just fill up what arrives last in the bottle leaving the old ones to get decayed or stale . So at some point of time some consumers will get the brunt of consuming the oldest and falling sick with food poisoning .
Many of us would have also seen in Super Markets , personnel are assigned to arrange the products according to the date of Manufacture , so the early produced is consumed first .
May be the next move will be to declare the Nutritive Values in the produce .
We have to be happy to note that the Poorer segment will also have protection of food supplied / sold to them .

Finally; most traders make use of these loop holes to supply the market with substandard products. more
Yes, you are correct and FSSAI has a vigilant role to play instead of advisory. more
yes it should be in a way that consumers can understand the same very easily and in that way irrespective of the qty if one puts price per kg to compare will be ideal. more
Pl. also comment if a retailer , conceals the mfd date & batch detail of an expired food item beyond best before date & sells it on discount
Are there any provisions as per FSSAI to take action against such sale pl more
