FSSAI to introduce labelling of artificial sweetener on beverages sold via vending machines

The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) is looking at making amendments in the Food Safety and Standards (Prohibition and Restrictions on Sales) Regulations, 2011.

The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) is looking at making amendments in the Food Safety and Standards (Prohibition and Restrictions on Sales) Regulations, 2011. The amendments will be made by the food regulator to introduce labelling of artificial sweetener on beverages sold through vending machines.

Presently, companies must declare the presence of artificial sweetener in every package of food on its labelling as well as in their advertisements.

The FSSAI is proposing that if a beverage product containing artificial sweetener is sold via vending machines, "a display or label" declaring the presence of artificial sweetener "shall be placed on the cups or in the container in which the product is served".

The food regulator has further proposed to make it mandatory for a prominent display or labelling on the vending machine. It is now seeking views from the industry and other stakeholders for the proposed changes.
