New milk sampling scheme launched: FSSAI


29th July 2019

New milk sampling scheme launched: FSSAI

In 2018, during the National Milk Quality Survey, the FSSAI collected 6,432 samples from 602 towns. In the survey, the apex food regulator found out that the milk in India is largely safe. However, some samples were found to be positive for adulterants and contaminants.

Four quality parameters, 12 adulterants and four contaminants, 93 antibiotics residues, 18 pesticide residues, Aflatoxin M1 and Ammonium Sulphate were checked during the sample testing. 90% samples were found safe during the survey and only 10% were found to be non-compliant.

To ensure the supply of safe and quality milk to consumers and to address the non-compliances of the samples, the FSSAI took several initiatives. One of them is the new scheme for sampling, testing and inspection of milk for self-monitoring at licensed establishments for dairy processing. It elaborates specific quality and safety tests needed to be conducted at specific time intervals.

From 1st October 2019, the scheme will be operational and compliance verification will start from 1st January 2020.
