  1. Last year, keeping the health and safety of the public in mind, Punjab Food Authority (PFA) collected the samples of UHT/Tetra Pack milk products in March, August, and December, respectively.

    The PFA sent those samples to ISO-17025 Certified Laboratories SGS, PCSIR and Intertek in order to check the quality of boxed milk on the basis of chemical, biological, and physical perimeters.

    The laboratories conducted an analysis of various brands based on the following categories:

    UHT milk samples
    Samples of pasteurized milk
    Below is the list of milk brands that passed the testing.
    Natural Pasteurised Category
    Anhaar Milk
    Daily Dairy
    Doce Milk
    Gourmet Milk
    Nutrivo Milk
    Achaa Milk
    Adams Milk
    Malmo Milk
    Prema Milk
    Pack Fresh
    UHT/ Tetra Brands
    Haleeb
    Olpers
    Nurpur Milk
    Nestle Milk Pack
    Nestle Nesveta
    Day Fresh
    Good Milk
    PFA claimed that “these milk brands are safe for consumption.”

    The report said that PFA will be conducting four or more similar sample tests in 2018 too. The authority will forward the samples to ISO Certified Testing Labs whenever required.

    The Punjab Food Authority warned the milk selling companies to follow international standards while processing the milk, otherwise, stern actions will be taken against them.

    The report also advised the public to prefer processed UHT/tetra pack milk over local and open milk to avoid possible health issues.
