‘Best Before’ Date On Loose Sweets Mandatory From Today: FSSAI

New Delhi: The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) issued a new guideline for food business operators especially those selling sweets.

The regulator FSSAI has made it mandatory for confectioners to display ”best before date” of non-packaged sweets with effect from today as part of its efforts to ensure food safety.

In a letter to the commissioner of food safety of all states and Union Territories, FSSAI recently noted that “…in the public interest and to ensure food safety, it has been decided that in case of non-packaged/ loose sweets, the container/tray holding sweets at the outlet for sale should display the ‘Best Before Date’ of the product mandatorily with effect from October 1, 2020,” as quoted by Times Now.

According to the new directive, confectioners have been given the liberty to decide and display the best-before date of sweets depending upon the nature of the product and the local conditions.

An indicative list of shelf life of various types of sweets is available on the official site of FSSAI.

It added that all the food business operators (FBOs) dealing in sweets must comply with these directions.

It further stated that the FBOs may also display the date of manufacturing on the product, but ‘it is not mandatory, however’.

The decision has been after the health agency received various complaints about the quality and adulteration of sweets, mostly during the festive season.
