Food Safety & Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) has recommended all the food businesses which deal directly with the consumers such as retail stores, milk booths, vegetable & fruit retail, meat shops, restaurants, street food vendors,etc. to keep Food Safety Display Boards (FSDBs) at their outlets.
The boards shall ensure visibility of FSSAI registration / license number and also inform the customer and the food handler about the important food safety and hygiene practices required to keep food safe. It shall also have the contact details of FSSAI and the Retailer regarding any concerns and feedbacks.
The requirement is optional for now. RAI had organized a National Workshop to drive Safe and Nutritious food agenda in food retail along with FSSAI in New Delhi wherein FSSAI has confirmed their intention of making the FSDB's mandatory.
