FSSAI amends labeling rules for pre-packaged foods
The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) has amended labeling and display rules for pre-packaged foods.
It has asked the Food Business Operators (FBOs) to substitute “Best Before Date” on the packages with “Expiry Date” or “Use By Date”.
The “Best Before Date” can be displayed as additional or optional information on the label, stated an official release from the state government.
Foods with less than three months of shelf life need to display production details in the “date-month-year” format.
