Gu­jarat milk co­op­er­a­tive fined for sell­ing adul­ter­ated cream

Consumer Voice - - In The News -

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.
