  1. oh nice.. there are n number of Ghee manufacturers in Andhra Pradesh who offer retailers a margin of 40% and above.. Wonder how much of vanaspati is being added.. wish to see some raids soon in andhra pradesh soon, such that people can get to eat unadultrated Ghee.

  2. Why the authorities do not publish the names of ghee manufacturers ? Why there is no system in place for alerting the public of results of food sample testing by analytical labs? Why the Food authorities in Kerala took more than one month (19 December 2011) to issue directions to food safety officers in the state to search for adulterated chilly powder (sudan mixed)after the Spices board detected the same in 16 November 2011 and intimated the same to the state food authority on 17 November 2011 ? Why did the State Food Authority not consider that this one month delay would have helped the manufacturers (Eastern condiments) in managing their product in the local market ? Kindly offer your views...
