The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) is all set to address the Supreme Court’s concerns on milk adulteration by issuing new standards for milk and milk products, reports CNBC-TV18.
Sources say FSSAI is working on a 3-pronged approach to ensure an overall assessment is done before final guidelines are rolled out and conducting pan-India milk quality survey to identify risk zones.
The food regulator is reportedly taking into account 10-12 parameters in the survey and may provide definition of ‘adulteration’ and ‘fat content’ in the final guidelines.
The State Food Safety Commissioners are likely to meet on August 23 to review state reports.
