In order to curb use of plastic in restaurants and eateries, the Food Safety Standard Authority of India (FSSAI), has now begun to regulate food packaging norms. The move comes after the FSSAI found contamination in food products through its packaging material.
The Food Business Operators (FBO) have been asked not to wrap food products using recycled plastics, newspapers and paper sheets.
“This is the latest direction to all FBOs by the apex food regulator. The move is taken after the results of two studies conducted by FSSAI which noted the presence of chemical contamination and heavy metals from packing materials into food,” reads a report in India Today.
