See details here!
Nestle, a brand that is at the forefront of the food and beverage industry, recently disclosed in an internal report that about 60% of their products could not be guaranteed safe to use under standard health regulations.
In Pakistan, Nestle is a large distributor of dairy products, food for infants, and medical nutrition items that are routinely tested by the Pakistan Standards and Quality Control Authority (PSQCA) and the Pakistan Council for Research in Water Resources (PCRWR).
Only under Australia’s health rating system was it found that 37% of Nestle food items were rated above 3.5 out of 5 stars, which was published in an internal report to top Nestle executives, according to Financial Times.
However, specialized medical items, animal food and baby food were not included.
When contacted by Independent Urdu, Pakistan Standards, and Quality Control feigned no recognition of the knowledge of the recent report.
The Media Advisor to PSQCA, Rehmatullah, mentioned, “Nestle Pakistan has nothing to do with Nestle Global, and Nestle Pakistan has different quality control.” He also pointed out that PSQCA conducts timely inspections of various products.
When prompted if the Nestle products had been tested recently after the report, he replied, “No tests have been done yet.”
Although later, a Reuters report published on the 31st of May was sent to them and was then contacted for re-examination.
