Jaivik Bharat - FSSAI Certification
What is the Jaivik Bharat ?
The Indian Market is flooded with new organic products coming up everyday. With the increase in production and demand for organic products, the authenticity and genuineness of the product becomes a matter of concern.
Considering this situation, The Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) in December 2017, introduced the Jaivik Bharat logo to help customers identify authentic organic food. Any Product with the Jaivik Bharat Logo claims to meet all the norms and requirements of organic farming.
Jaivik Bharat Logo
The Jaivik Bharat logo bears a circle, leaf and a tick mark.
The circle represents global holistic wellness, the leaf represents nature, and the tick mark denotes the product as FSSAI certified.
The unified logo is an identity mark to distinguish organic food products from non-organic ones supported with the tagline “Jaivik Bharat” at the bottom, which signifies Organic Food from India.
