The Food Safety and Security Authority of India (FSSAI) on October 22, 2020 has issued a Press Release wherein it specified about the PAN India Surveillance of Khoa launched by FSSAI. Khoa is widely used in making most Indian sweets. It has been reported that adulterated Khoa is being manufactured and marketed across the country therefore it has been decided to conduct a PAN–India Khoa Quality survey. 

The Commissioner Food Safety of all States and UTs have been requested to select Khoa mandis in their respective States and UTs especially in big cities; and place the Food Safety on Wheels (FSWs) for 5 days from October 12 to 16, 2020 and encourage Khoa buyers to get their Khoa sample tested.

The final survey results will help in identification of the key hot spots for adulteration of Khoa in different parts of the country and strengthen efforts at the States and UT level in devising targeted enforcement drives in the coming months. The whole exercise is aimed at ensuring availability of pure and safe Khoa for safe Indian sweets in the country.
