JAMMU, Oct 24: In an advisory issued here today, Halwai Association, Jammu, has asked the sweet sellers of Jammu region to follow norms of Food Safety & Standards Act 2006 of India (FSSAI) strictly.
The advisory was issued by the association during a press conference addressed here today by president, Nek Ram and general secretary, SS Arora.
While speaking on the occasion, Nek Ram said advised all the sweet sellers to keep their business places/workshops neat and clean, use quality raw material for preparation of eatables/sweets, ensure dust free items, avoid colours and if required use permissible food colour in small quantity.
SS Arora said that all the sweets sellers should stick to the rates fixed by the association/CAPD Jammu and display their eatables in the counters/refrigerators. He further advised them not to use chemicals, which are harmful and prohibited under FSSAI and always give contents to the satisfaction of the customers.
The association assured the citizens of Jammu to provide them best quality of sweets and other eatables on genuine rates on the occasion of Diwali.
Earlier, the association members also expressed the labour problem being faced by the sweets sellers. They said that due to lack of local labour they have to depend for manpower on states like Bihar, UP and Jharkhand, resulting into cost of production but still they are managing to provide the sweets to the Jammuites on low prices as compared to the neighbouring states.
