Dabur India launches first ever Mo­bile Honey-test­ing Lab

Rural & Marketing - - UPDATES -

Adding yet an­other first in its mis­sion in in­no­va­tion, India’s lead­ing health­care com­pany, Dabur India Lim­ited, to­day in­au­gu­rated the first ever Mo­bile Honey Test­ing Lab. This unique on-the-wheel lab has been designed specif­i­cally to re­duce the adul­ter­ation in honey and en­sure that pu­rity is main­tained.

The Mo­bile Honey Test­ing Lab was flagged off from Dabur Re­search and De­vel­op­ment Cen­tre in Sahibabad by Su­nil Dug­gal, CEO Dabur India. Start­ing its jour­ney from Ut­tar Pradesh, the lab will tap 2 ma­jor cen­tres for bee farm­ing in Muzaf­farpur, Bi­har and Sun­dar­bans, West Ben­gal. With the help of the Mo­bile Honey Test­ing Lab, bee-keep­ers can now test the pu­rity of their honey and avoid adul­ter­ation, since the ma­jor­ity of the honey sold in the do­mes­tic mar­ket is im­pure, con­tain­ing sugar-mixed in­gre­di­ents and an­tibi­otics. The sam­ples will be tested in 2 types of equip­ment- Ran­dox and Altino, and which will pro­vide an ac­cu­rate on-the-spot re­sult on the pu­rity of the honey. This unique ser­vice will be cost ef­fec­tive.

In­au­gu­rat­ing the lab, Dug­gal said, “We are pleased to bring for­ward this unique ini­tia­tive which will rev­o­lu­tionise the bee­farm­ing land­scape and honey test­ing mod­ules in India. The av­er­age con­sump­tion of honey is in­creas­ing ev­ery day and we have been wit­ness­ing the de­mand for a com­pre­hen­sive yet con­ve­nient honey test­ing mod­ule.”

“Dabur’s Mo­bile Honeytest­ing Lab will of­fer rapid and cost ef­fec­tive ser­vices to test the qual­ity of honey from the source, thereby cut­ting off adul­ter­ation. We ex­pect to sam­ple 250 batches in ev­ery city and will keep adding more num­bers and cities as per our ob­ser­va­tions,” he added.
