Spice Board of India Takes Action to Ensure Safety of Spice Exports

Following the recent controversy surrounding the presence of Ethylene Oxide (EtO) residue in Indian spices, the Spice Board of India has taken several steps to ensure the safety and quality of spice exports to Singapore and Hong Kong.

Sampling and Testing: The Spice Board has made it mandatory to sample and test all spice shipments to Singapore and Hong Kong for EtO residues, effective May 7, 2024.

The Board is working with other countries to establish a standard for EtO use in spices.

The Board has issued guidelines to exporters on EtO treatment to prevent contamination.

Techno-Scientific Committee: The Board has implemented the recommendations of a Techno-Scientific Committee that investigated the root cause of the EtO issue.

The Board organized a consultation with over 130 exporters and associations to discuss the issue and develop solutions.

Export Ban: Hong Kong banned four spice products from Indian brands MDH and Everest due to the presence of EtO.

The banned spices represent less than one percent of India's total spice exports.

The Spice Board of India is committed to ensuring the safety and quality of Indian spice exports. The steps taken by the Board are expected to prevent future incidents of EtO contamination and maintain the reputation of Indian spices in international markets.
