A press release from the FSSAI
said: "India is the second-largest food producer in the world but on the Global Hunger Index 2014, India ranked 103rd out of the world's 119th hungriest countries."
Pawan Agarwal, chief executive of FSSAI
, is confident about Afghanistan's future prospects.
Their publication follows the signing earlier this year of a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between FSSAI
, CII, and IADSA.
When describing permissible food defects, FSSAI
uses a term called 'extraneous matter'.
AHAR wrote on January 31 to Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) Commissioner Ajoy Mehta, requesting that they be allowed to use 'roti atta' within the kitchen as FSSAI
instructs not to store sand in the cooking area as it can contaminate the food.
'It is tremendously exciting to see so many ideas, innovations and so much talent and creativity all in one place," said Pawan Agarwal, CEO of FSSAI
. "We just hope that winning this award and having their innovative solutions recognised by global experts will help these talented innovators grow and scale up their businesses, contributing fresh ideas and vision to our economy," he further added.
The competent authority, on condition of anonymity, told me that when the Chairperson of the FSSAI
had visited in 2014 he had insisted that all FBOs be registered.
But the FSSAI
has now approached the Supreme Court challenging the High Court order on several counts, but primarily maintaining that Maggi noodles samples chosen at random by an independent body should have been tested in laboratories, and not those provided by Nestle.
petition says the Bombay High Court erred by asking Nestle itself, rather than a neutral authority, to provide the fresh Maggi samples for testing at the government laboratories, the newspaper reported.
"As part of the efforts to resolve the Maggi noodles issue, Nestle India has today approached the Bombay High Court raising issues of interpretation of the Food Safety and Standards Act 2011 while seeking a judicial review of the order dated June 6, 2015, passed by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in Maharashtra and the order dated June 5 passed by FSSAI
. At the same time, we are continuing withdrawal of Maggi noodle products.
While reserving the right to prosecute, the FSSAI
issued a series of orders to Nestle, including withdrawing nine versions of its Maggi instant noodles and another product that was being sold without product approval.
