M.M. Hills Temple renews FSSAI licence for ‘laddu prasada’

November 30, 2021

Mysore/Mysuru: The Sri Malai Mahadeshwara Temple has got its licence renewed under the Food Safety and Standards Act (FSSAI – Food Safety and Standards Authority of India) for the ‘prasada’ it serves to devotees visiting the temple atop M.M. Hills in Chamarajanagar district. The ‘laddu’ served at the temple is now FSSAI certified for the second year in a row.

The licence is valid from Nov. 25, 2021 to Nov.24, 2022.

The licence was availed as a part of Blissful Hygienic Offering to God (BHOG), a project initiated by FSSAI for places of worship for complying with the food safety guidelines laid down under the Act while preparing ‘prasada.’

The temple authority sought the licence last year on the advice of the then Minister in-charge of Chamarajanagar District S. Suresh Kumar, who had reviewed the ‘prasada’ preparation.

The kitchen staff of the temple underwent training and studied food safety standards maintained at Sri Kshetra Dharmasthala, on the advice of the Commissioner, Department of Muzrai, before going for the licence. The quality control measures as mandated under the Act are examined once in three months by the representatives of FSSAI.

The temple has the capacity to prepare 50,000 ‘laddus’ every day. However, on an average, 20,000 to 25,000 ‘laddus’ are prepared.
