Urging concerned stakeholders to ensure quality edible oil for consumers, Food Minister Sadhan Chandra Majumder on Tuesday said loose edible oil won't be allowed to be sold in the markets after March 16, 2022.
"Unhealthy and adulterated food is an obstacle in creating efficient human resources. Businessmen should play a vital role in building skilled manpower for the country. If businessmen become aware, the tendency of adulteration in edible oil will be reduced to a great extent," he said, reports BSS.
Sadhan urged the oil traders to gain consumers' trust by supplying quality edible oils to the customers.
