Must Read

India has taken a strong stance on improving spice quality standards at the 86th session of the Codex Alimentarius Commission (CAC), held at the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) headquarters in Rome, Italy. This session bought together international food safety and quality authorities to discuss and establish global standards.

G. Kamala Vardhana Rao, CEO of the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI), represented India at the session. India emphasized the need for strengthening quality measures to ensure the purity, safety, and global competitiveness of spices, given that the country is one of the largest producers and exporters of spices.

The push for better quality standards is seen as a move to safeguard consumer health and boost the country’s export market. Additionally, this initiative can be viewed as a step to restore the credibility of Indian spices after several recalls of certain spice brands by different nations.
