New Logo Launched for Home-Based Food Producers in the Maldives

The Business Centre Corporation (BCC) has unveiled a new logo designed specifically for home-based food producers and sellers in the Maldives. First Lady Sajida Mohamed officially launched the logo during a ceremony at the Islamic Centre.

The new logo aims to increase public confidence in the safety of home-produced food items by indicating adherence to Maldives Food and Drug Authority (MFDA) standards. Speaking at the event, First Lady Sajida Mohamed emphasized the potential of this initiative to empower home-based businesses, particularly those run by women. She also advocated for the swift passage of the Food Security Bill 2021, which is currently before Parliament.

To use the logo, home-based food producers must apply through the MFDA’s Live portal and register with a designated BCC portal. A BCC official clarified that the logo is intended for non-perishable food items such as thelli fairy, rihaakuru, and masmirus. While the MFDA will not conduct site inspections prior to granting approval, they will address any issues that may arise.

Although the use of the logo is currently optional, the BCC underscored its importance as a symbol of quality and safety assurance for consumers.
