16 Milk Brands Declared Fit for Consumption in Pakistan

16 Milk brands declared safe in Pakistan

Punjab Food Authority (PFA) has issued lab reports of its recently conducted tests and 16 milk brands are declared safe for human consumption in Pakistan.

In a press release PFA revealed that the following packaged milk brands are fit for people;

  1. Olpers
  2. Haleeb
  3. Good Milk
  4. Nestle Milk Pack
  5. Nesvita
  6. Nurpur

The authority is said to have tested the samples of these brands in national and international laboratories. Among pasteurized milk brands following are good for health:

  1. Acha
  2. Adams
  3. Anhaar
  4. Prema
  5. Daily Diary
  6. Day Fresh
  7. Gourmet
  8. Malmo
  9. Doce
  10. Nutrivi

The samples of the said brands were collected from 15th-20th March. They were tested by the Pakistan Council of Scientific and Industrial Research (PCSIR), Intertek, and SGS, both of which are German firms.

Pakistan is the second country in the world where more than 70 percent of the milk is contaminated. Previously, it was revealed in Supreme Court that various brands including Haleeb are poisoning Pakistanis. PFA revealed in the court that Haleeb contains a chemical called formalin, which is actually used for preserving dead bodies.

The brand was also found to have contained sugarcane juice. And not just Haleeb other brands like Acha, Al-Fazl Food, Doce, Al-Fajr Food, Gourmet were all said to be unsafe for use.

Since then many companies have been fined and sealed by the authority. Also, the Competition Commission of Pakistan (CCP) fined Engro Foods Limited (EFL), Noon Pakistan Limited (NPL), and Shakarganj Foods Products Limited (SFP) for deceiving customers by marketing and selling their tea whiteners and dairy drinks like milk.

PFA following this development ordered tea whitener brands to write “This is not milk” on 15 percent of the total area of their product’s packaging.

    Hello, I am a Canadian dietitian nutritionist and looking for best milk brands to use in Pakistan. In this article only date and month is mentioned when samples were taken, didn’t describe about the year.
    Also, many brands that were unsafe to use earlier, how are they ok to be used now? ( Much concerned about Milk pack and haleeb milk quality )

    i dont think so its a appropriate list issued by Noonis.
    As Supreme Court also checked many brands recently, and Nestle was on TOP which was harmful for the Health.
    I think Punj Gov taking so much Rishwat to declare many brands to be good for health. Whereas, Nestle and Anhaar (Sharif Family Brand) is not good. I have left using Nestle Made in pak products for so long. Pathetic quality
