Quality of feni production starting this season

Goa : The excise department is gearing up to introduce standardisation in quality of feni production starting this season, the process which gained momentum in August 2016 with the amendment of the Goa Excise Duty Act, labelling Goa’s brew as ‘heritage drink.We should be able to issue permissions to genuine feni distillers complying with quality standards defined by the Food and Drugs Administration (FDA) for feni from this season. A meeting with stakeholders was held last week to discuss the draft feni policy prepared by the Goa University,” said excise commissioner Shashank Mani Tripathi.

The need for standardisation of feni making process was felt as distillers reduce the strength of the base spirit to increase their profit margin, bringing disrepute to the product.While few distillers have been trying their best to maintain the quality of feni, some bad apples are spoiling the show,” said a North Goa based distiller.
