FSSAI will review in October the progress on delisting of non-licensed restaurants

FSSAI will begin reviewing in October the progress made by online food delivery platforms in delisting non-licensed restaurants and catering establishments.

Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) will begin reviewing in the first week of October the progress made by online food delivery platforms, including Zomato and Swiggy, in delisting non-licensed restaurants and catering establishments.

Pawan Kumar Agarwal, CEO of FSSAI, said, "We had given time till end of September (to these platforms). We will review in the first week of October on the progress made on de-listing of non-licensed restaurants and catering firms."

Earlier, restaurant discovery and food delivery firm Zomato had announced that it is delisting restaurants from its platform that are not compliant with the regulations set by the FSSAI.

The food regulator had operationalised guidelines for e-commerce Food Business Operators (FBOs) in February 2018. Later on, it ordered Box8, Faasos, FoodCloud, Foodmingo, Foodpanda, JusFood, LimeTray, Swiggy, UberEats and Zomato to de-list non licensed eateries. The decision was taken by FSSAI after it received consumer complaints of sub-standard food being served through e-commerce platforms.
