FSSAI issues warning against commercialization of human milk

New-Delhi: The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) recently denied permission to process or sell human milk under the FSS Act 2006.

FSSAI has advised that all activities related to commercialization of human milk and its products should be stopped.

In an advisory titled ‘Suggestion on unauthorized commercialization of human milk and its products’, the FSSAI said it was upon receiving representations from various registered societies regarding the commercialization of human milk and its products.

So that FSSAI had not permitted the processing or seal human milk under the FSS Act, 2006, and the associated rules and regulations.

It was advised that all activities related to the commercialization of human milk and its products should be stopped immediately, with any violations potentially leading to action against the FBO9(s) as per the FSS Act, 2006 and the associated rules and regulations.

FSSAI thought that state and central licensing authorities should ensure that no license or registration is granted to FBO’s involved in the processing or sale of mother’s milk or human milk.

Breastfeeding Promotion Network of India (BPNI) has urged the government to take action against those organizations. According to the experts, market forces should not drive the commercialization of human milk and human nutrition.

FSSAI’s directive comes in response to several registered societies that requested commercialization of human milk. The regulator has made it clear that any activity related to this will not be tolerated and will face strict consequences.
