PFA reaffirms quality of Haleeb after testing by international laboratories

Lahore: Punjab Food Authority (PFA)has clarified Haleeb milk after comprehensive tests carried out by two independent international food testing laboratories.
According to press release, Haleeb’s UHT treated packaged milk was found fully meeting the specified quality standards, thereby negating all baseless rumors of recent months about its quality.
It is to be noted that Haleeb’s packaged milk was tested earlier in the year also on the orders of the Supreme Court and had cleared those tests too, based on which the Supreme Court had declared Haleeb milk fit for human consumption in its March 9, 2017 ruling.
At that time the Court had instructed the PFA to conduct another round of tests during the summer period to reconfirm the consistency of quality, and now the results of this second round of tests has reconfirmed the conformity of Haleeb milk to the laid down quality standards.
The PFA had collected the samples of all UHT milk companies from the market and sent these for analysis to two independent testing labs, Intertek and SGS laboratories.
Both the labs belong to separate international chains of food testing laboratories and their results are accepted globally.
The tests of both laboratories have confirmed that Haleeb milk is free from any harmful elements.
