Pack­ag­ing

The honey shall be packed in hy­gien­i­cally clean, wide-mouthed glass con­tain­ers or in acid-re­sis­tant, lac­quered tin con­tain­ers, or in other suit­able con­tain­ers. With glass-bot­tle pack­ag­ing, one does not have to worry about harm­ful sub­stances from plas­tic leach­ing into the honey, or the plas­tic not be­ing food-grade. The screwed caps for the glass con­tain­ers shall be of non-cor­ro­sive and non-re­ac­tive ma­te­rial and shall be pro­vided with wash­ers to avoid spilling.

All the brands were packed in a sealed con­tainer.

Mark­ing

Each con­tainer should be leg­i­bly and in­deli­bly marked with th­ese de­tails: a) name of the ma­te­rial and grade des­ig­na­tion; b) name of the packer; c) batch or code num­ber; d) date of pack­ing; e) net weight; f) stan­dard mark (Ag­mark), if any; g) best be­fore; h) stor­age in­struc­tion; i) nu­tri­tional in­for­ma­tion; (opi­onal) and j) Green Dot. The Green Dot was not marked on Patan­jali de­spite

be­ing a re­quire­ment for veg­e­tar­ian prod­ucts.

Khadi claimed to be Grade A.
