The Department of Food Technology and Quality Control (DFTQC) has filed a case against the government-owned Dairy Development Corporation (DDC) for selling substandard dairy products.
The Food Department had conducted an inspection in October last year and found that the DDC was selling 194,975 kg of substandard butter.
Most of these products had crossed expiry dates, and many did not have labeling.
However, the Food Quality Controller took almost a year to file a case against the corporation. The DDC had already sold all its products by offering a hefty discount during the lockdown period.
Likewise, the regulatory body also filed a case against Sujal Dairy, a Pokhara-based private sector company, for its alliance with the DDC. The DFTQC has accused Sujal Dairy of concealing information about selling its substandard products to the DDC.
