Want not, waste not


Food Safety and Standards Authority of India (FSSAI) has framed a regulation to promote food donation by businesses and reduce wastage. The Food Safety and Standards (Recovery and Distribution of surplus food) Regulations, 2019, which will come into effect from 1 July 2020 is to establish a uniform national regulation to protect organizations and individuals when they donate food in good faith. FSSAI also seeks to encourage the donation of food and grocery products to non-profit organizations for distribution to needy individuals.

YouTube plans to end ads targeted ads in videos for kids 

Targeting young minds


YouTube has been under investigation by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) for violating children’s privacy laws. This was after consumer groups complained that YouTube had been collecting the data of children under the age of 13, which is a violation of the Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA).

YouTube officials now plan to end “targeted” advertisements in videos kids are likely to watch. This change might cost the company millions of dollars in ad sales, according to a Bloomberg report.
