The Punjab government today said it has instructed all the district authorities to ensure mandatory display of food safety boards by eateries and food business operators.
Disclosing this, an official spokesperson said under the existing provisions of the Food Safety and Standards (Licensing and Registration of Food Businesses) Regulations, 2011, it is mandatory to display the true copy of the licence at a prominent place at all times within the premises where the Food Business Operator carries on the food business.
He said it has been noticed that usually, the FSSAI licence number is not visible to the consumers.
Thus, to change the overall consumer perceptibility and to strengthen food safety, the Punjab government has directed the district authorities to ensure that Food Safety Display Boards (FSDBs) are being displayed by various food businesses operators in their jurisdiction, spokesman said.
