Westlife Foodworld stock up 3% on FSSAI-verified ‘100% Real Cheese’ use by McDonald’s India

Westlife Foodworld stock rose 3% on March 5 after it said FSSAI verified McDonald’s India uses “100% Real Cheese”.
“The apex food safety standards regulator of the country, the Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) under the administration of the Ministry of Health and Family Welfare, Government of India, has verified the cheese used by McDonald’s India as ‘100% Real Cheese’. The verification confirms the brand’s assertion that it uses 100% Real Cheese and that it does not use anycheese analogues or substitutes in any of its products,” said Westlife Foodworld (formerly Westlife Development) in a stock exchange filing.
“The confirmation from the FSSAI explicitly states that “Articles in question contain Cheese or cheeseproduct as a part of composition and does not contain analogue in dairy context in any form”. This clean chit is a testament to McDonald’s India’s commitment to upholding stringent food quality standards across all its restaurants, at all times,” added the QSR firm.
On March 5 at 1425 hours, Westlife Foodworld’s scrip on BSE was trading 3% higher at Rs 756.
The ‘clean chit’ from FSSAI comes days after Maharashtra Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has revoked the licence of a McDonald’s outlet in the state’s Ahmednagar district after taking action against it over cheese.
