MUMBAI: Retail chain Subhiksha, which has been slapped with a 20-day suspension order on its Mumbai warehouse by the Maharashtra Food and Drug Authority (FDA) on issues of hygiene, said its operations in the city would not be affected by it.

"We always have a back-up for supply from other warehouses in case there is some problem in any particular warehouse," Subhiksha's Managing Director R Subramanian told reporters.

However, he said, "We don't think that the need will arise since we are appealing to the Bombay High Court at the earliest and are confident that the matter will be resolved soon."

If need arises, the company may outsource from its warehoused located in nearby Gujarat, Indore and other places, Subramanian said.

"We have a total of three warehouses in Maharashtra -- Pune, Nagpur and Mumbai -- comprising around three lakh square feet," Subramanian said.

Subhiksha has around 125 stores operational in Mumbai while in Maharashtra, it has around 210 stores, he said.
In addition, there were eight mini-warehouses in Mumbai which would remain operational, he added.
