In response to concerns over misinterpretation, the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) has directed food service establishments to meticulously adhere to regulations regarding the disclosure of crucial information about the food they serve.

Addressing a critical need for transparency, FSSAI has communicated with state food safety commissioners to ensure strict compliance across the board.

According to the stipulated guidelines, license holders operating food outlets at ten or more locations are mandated to prominently display the calorific value alongside each food item on menus, boards, or booklets.

Moreover, it is imperative for these establishments to provide detailed information about food allergens and indicate the vegetarian or non-vegetarian status of each item on display.

The provision of comprehensive nutritional information is required. For e-commerce food business operators, the responsibility lies in obtaining this vital data from respective Food Business Operators and ensuring its availability on their websites, wherever applicable.

This concerted effort by FSSAI shows a commitment to ensuring consumer safety and empowerment through informed choices. Compliance with these regulations is paramount to maintaining the integrity of food service operations and safeguarding public health.
