The FSSAI has once again asked notified labs to upgrade their organic food testing abilities as the Government of India has decided to promote organic food in the country in a big way.

FSSAI has issued another direction, in this regard, which is the second in the last three months, stating, “In continuation to the order of even number dated 16th June 2023, it is again to inform that the Government of India is promoting organic products in our country by encouraging and strengthening cooperative societies. The success of this depends on reliable testing to ensure the authenticity of the organic products. Therefore, all food testing laboratories need to optimise their facilities and procedures to handle organic testing efficiently and accurately.”

All the FSSAI notified laboratories were directed to review their current capabilities and take the necessary steps to enhance the infrastructure and scope of the testing for organic products along with making an application to APEDA for authorisation as one of its laboratories by submission of the accreditation certificate and scope details.

The FSSAI direction added that the lab shall also indicate the inclusion in the list of laboratories for organic products besides applying to National Referral Laboratory of APEDA for proficiency testing programme/competence assessment in order to qualify for pre-export testing of organic products.  

 “It is also instructed to all laboratories applying for organic products to compulsorily include this specific category within the FSSAI-NABL integrated scope,” reads the direction.
