LAHORE: Punjab Chief Minister Shahbaz Sharif has constituted a committee to settle the dispute between a leading food manufacturing company – Engro Foods – and the Punjab Food Authority (PFA) over restrictions on the distribution and sale of ‘Dairy Omung’.

The committee comprises Punjab’s food minister, PFA director general, food scientists, law secretary and industry stakeholders. It will also recommend classifications for dairy drinks, introduced by different companies in the market.

Engro Foods Chief Executive Officer Sarfaraz Rehman attended the meeting on Friday and expressed hope for a positive resolution of the issue.

The restriction came after the PFA claimed that Dairy Omung was not milk. The company itself agrees to it and calls it a dairy drink. The company conducted a research on the loose (raw) milk available in the market, and found that it was “unhygienic and not safe for consumption”.
