FSSAI launches a drive against Adulteration in the Edible Oil; aims at ensuring availability of pure edible oil in the country

The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (“FSSAI”) has, through a Press Release dated 28th August 2020, decided to intensify crackdown against the sale of adulterated Edible Oil with a Pan-India surveillance of Edible Oil (both for the branded and unbranded oil samples).

Accordingly, a quality survey was conducted across the country between 25th to 27th August 2020 across all the States/ UTs, wherein, samples were drawn from hypermarkets/ supermarkets. Also, it has been stated that the final survey results would help in identification of the key hot spots for adulteration of edible oils in different parts of the country and also strengthen efforts at the States/UT level in devising targeted enforcement drives in the coming months. The whole exercise is aimed at ensuring availability of pure and safe mustard and other edible vegetable oils in the country.
