And FSSAI strikes again!
In another development, it seems that FSSAI is now in action in full power. It seems to be taking alcoholic beverages under its list of standards to monitor the quality that is inflowing for its consumers.
A senior official told PTI :
Work is going on to prepare standards for alcohol and alcoholic beverages, in next two months the FSSAI will come up with draft notification seeking comments from the public
Among the drinks, whiskey, vodka, gin, beer and even breezer will come under the proposed standards, the official said.
According to NDTV:
Earlier this year, a meeting of the Central Advisory Committee had also discussed having standards for alcohol and alcoholic beverages. It was decided that once standards for alcohol and alcoholic beverages were finalised it shall be intimated to all states and UTs so that they may suitably advise the respective excise departments.
As the trend is going on, it seems that India is going to witness international levels of food standards soon, which is a great news to all the consumers, and to keep them healthy and aware of what they consume.
