Punjab to ban online delivery of food without hygiene rating as per FSSAI guidelines

Punjab State government plans to ban online delivery of food without hygienerating as per the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) guidelines. The announcement was made by the Health Minister Brahm Mohindra announced on 30 May. The decision was taken under the ‘Tandarust Punjab Mission’.

Conditions laid by the State:
Health Minister of the State Brahm Mohindra has issued directions to all online food order and supply companies to display the hygiene rating of the food business operators registered with them.
The State has given three months for compliance with the law. After the deadline, no online food order will be delivered in the state without the hygiene rating.
The online food companies can take orders from consumers and deliver it after procuring the hygiene rating from the Food Business Operators associated with them.

The online food order and door to door delivery mechanism of the food supply have created a physical disconnect between consumers and the food maker. Therefore, the onus of ensuring the quality of food and that conditions under which food is prepared are hygienic has shifted to the intermediate food delivery mechanism.

Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI):
Formed on: August 2011
Headquarters: New Delhi
Chairperson: Rita Teotia
CEO: Pawan Kumar Agarwal
Parent Organization: Ministry of Health & Family Welfare
