Gujarat milk cooperative fined for selling adulterated cream
A court in New Delhi has fined Gujarat Cooperative Milk Marketing Federation Ltd (GCMMF) one lakh rupees for selling adulterated milk products. Additional Chief Metropolitan Magistrate Gaurav Rao convicted (GCMMF) under various sections of the Prevention of Food Adulteration Act (PFA).
The case dates back to 2006, when a team of food department raided Shangri-La Hotel in central Delhi and found that low standard cream was being using for human consumption. During investigation, it was revealed that cream was adulterated and milk fat was found to be less than the minimum prescribed standard of 25 per cent. It came to light that the product was manufactured by Pramanik's firm, which is a unit of the Gujarat-based GCMMF.
