Loose sweets to carry 'best before' & manufacturing date labels: FSSAI

Feb 27, 2020 12:35 IST

Come June 2020, even local sweet shops that sell non-packaged and loose sweets, will have to specify the 'best before date' and the 'date of manufacturing', according to the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India. Currently, these details are specified only on pre-packaged sweets but now will have to be labelled on trays of loose sweets as well. The FSSAI has directed food safety authorities of different states to comply with the order, which comes into effect from the 1st of June. However, some sweet owners say they will appeal to the government against the order, since shelf life of products differ.
