Maharashtra FDA issues notice to over 100 outlets listed on food delivery apps

The notice was issued after FDA found out that these outlets had violated norms under the Food Safety and Standards Act, 2006.

Maharashtra Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued 'stop work' notices to more than 100 food establishments that deliver food through food delivery apps like Swiggy, Zomato, Food Panda, and Uber Eats. The notice was issued after FDA found out that these outlets had violated norms under the Food Safety and Standards Act, 2006.

These companies were selling food items without proper permissions from the state authorities. Also, the food items sold by some of them were found to be of low quality. 

Pallavi Darade, FDA Commissioner, said, "The FDA survey has revealed that the establishments of food processing working through these online apps and websites worked in unhealthy conditions. There were several violations found."

The stop business notices have been issued to 85 outlets linked with Swiggy, 50 of Zomato, three outlets of Foodpanda and two of Uber Eats. 

Shailesh Aadhav, FDA Joint Commissioner (Food), said, "Most food outlets inspected in Mumbai and found flouting norms were small-scale businesses focused on food delivery through portals. In most, we found cleanliness of cooking utensils and equipment was not maintained. Those cooking food were also not maintaining personal hygiene."
