Is GRD powder covered under the expression "non-alcoholic drink and beverage"?
May. 21, 2016
Any potable liquid except water is a "beverage". Law clearly states that, an item in order to be classified as beverage, should be in the liquid form. The expression "beverage" as is commonly understood means any liquid other than water, which may be consumed neat or after dilution. Thus, the products in question, namely, GRD powder and GRD bix which are admittedly not in liquid form cannot be said to be beverages.
