FSSAI starts drive against unauthorised FBOs in City

Friday, 19 July 2019 | PNS | DEHRADUN

As per the direction issued on July 1 by the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) officials in the state have started a drive against all the Food Business Operators (FBO) running without permission in the city.

The drive is to address four types of non-compliance which include FBOs that are running in the city without registration certificates which are required to obtain a license, FBOs continuing business with an expired license or running a business without a license, businesses that have obtained fresh license instead of renewing the previous one to avoid penalties and FBOs manufacturing and processing food products which are not endorsed on their food license.

 A departmental official said, “We conduct these drives regularly and 20 such FBOs were already found violating the set conditions. Further actions will be taken against them.”

It is pertinent to mention that the FSSAI has only six food inspectors in Dehradun who are assigned to various areas of the city. The limited staff is one of the reasons the department struggles to keep an effective check on all the food business and shops in the city.
