Rules made easy for non-standardised food industry: Harsimrat

2,March, 2016

Union Food Processing Industries Minister Harsimrat Kaur Badal today announced that the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India(FSSAI) had approved more than 8000 new additives harmonised with international codex standards which would provide considerable relief to the industry.

While thanking Prime Minister Narendra Modi and Finance Minister Arun Jaitley for approving and announcing the policy of 100 per cent FDI in marketing of food products produced and manufactured in India in the General Budget, Ms Badal said she had taken up the difficulties faced by the industry with the FSSAI .

The Authority had now notified an amendment to the regulations as a result of which non-standardised food products called proprietary foods (except novel food and nutraceuticals) that use ingredients and additives approved in the regulations would no longer require product approval.
