Delhi’s food safety department seized over 1,060kg of counterfeit ghee during a raid which took place in Shradhanand Market, near Lahori Gate, recently. Food safety officers (FSOs) consfiscated a total of 60 cartons containing 18 one-kg plastic jars of ghee being sold under the brand name Gowardhan.

The raid was conducted on the complaint of the company whose products were being counterfeited.

“As per the information, a team of FSOs visited the location, conducted an inspection, collected samples of the ghee were taken and sent them to NABL Delhi Government Food Lab for testing,” stated Ranjit Singh, designated officer, food safety department, Delhi.

He added, “The results showed that the ghee was fake, as the colour was not consistent with pure ghee, and it did not have the typical smell either. It was also surprising to see that even at a high temperature, the ghee had not fully melted.”

“All the cartons have been seized by the FSOs, and memo has been made for Rajdhani Sales Corporation, distributor of Gowardhan Ghee, who was found to be guilty for selling the fake ghee,” Singh said.
