Consumer Voice - - Mixed-Fruit Jam -

Net weight: The weight of the jam was mea­sured and com­pared with the de­clared val­ues on their pack­ag­ing. All the 13 brands of jams tested had de­clared their net weight as 480/500/700 gm. When we weighed them un­der lab­o­ra­tory con­di­tions, we found that most of them ac­tu­ally weighed more than the quan­tity de­clared on the la­bel. Safal and Crem­ica had slightly less weight than the de­clared value but were well within the limit. Mark­ing: Each packet of milk should be marked/la­belled with th­ese par­tic­u­lars: a) Name of the prod­uct with the brand name,
