Tea associations looking to meet FSSAI on stapled tea bags ban
Updated : February 05, 2019 03:52 PM IST
FSSAI, last week, issued a notification seeking a ban on the use of pins in tea bags by the food business operators (FBOs).
The regulator has asked the FBOs to discontinue manufacture, storage, distribution, sale and import of stapled tea bags by June 30.
The tea associations had raised the issue of costs involved in transition from staple machines to staple-less machines amid a lack of such machine manufacturers globally.
