Seminar Discusses ‘Dealing Strictly’ with Milk Adulterators

20 January 2017

PAKISTAN - Despite being the fourth largest milk producing country with an annual production of 42 million tons, Pakistan faces a serious issue of milk adulteration, which should be dealt with strictly.

This was the essence of the speeches delivered at the seminar on ‘Milk Adulteration’ jointly organised by the Lahore Chamber of commerce and Industry (LCCI) and Dairy Development Department.

LCCI officials and Livestock Secretary Naseem Sadiq were among those who addressed the seminar.

All participants shared the view that strict action was needed against the adulterator who was not only putting human lives at risk but also damaging the image of the country.

They said that the phenomenon of adulteration of food, particularly milk, has become one of the most serious problems in the country.

Punjab Secretary for Livestock and Dairy Development Naseem Sadiq said that soon a complaint cell will be established to address the issue of milk adulteration.

He said that demands of milkmen are under consideration, while a direct link between them and consumers would be established as the middle man is responsible for milk price hike and adulteration.
