Sweet mart, 4 hotels booked for using sub-standard paneer

Nov 10, 2011

PANAJI: Five of the 18 samples of paneer collected from restaurants and shops in the state by the food and drug administration (FDA) during Diwali were found to be not of standard quality as they had very low fat content.

In a drive carried out from October 3 to 25, FDA collected 18 samples of paneer from various restaurants, sweet marts and dairies in the state. These samples were then sent to the food and drugs laboratory. "The report submitted last week reveals that five samples were found to not being of standard quality as the fat content was below the stipulated levels," said FDA director Salim Veljee.

Various qualities of paneer - sada paneer, malai paneer and low fat paneer - were drawn for quality check by FDA from hotels, sweet marts and dairies, located at Panaji, Margao, Calangute, Mapusa, Vasco and Ponda.

Of the five samples that were not found of standard quality, one was from a Vasco-based sweet mart and the other four were from hotels in Margao. "Our initial inquiry revealed that these Margao hotels had purchased the paneer from Goa-based sweet marts and we are now trying to trace the suppliers," said Veljee. The Vasco-based sweet mart and the four hotels using poor quality paneer have been booked under the Food and Safety and Standards Act, 2006.
