Now there is no bar to manufacture, sell and market PRAN Turmeric powder, curry powder and lachcha semai
Bangladesh Standards and Testing Institution (BSTI) has certified PRAN Turmeric powder, curry powder and lachcha semai as standard products.
BSTI recently issued three separate letters in this regard.
With this there will be no bar to manufacture, sell and market PRAN Turmeric powder, curry powder and lachcha semai, reports UNB.
Earlier on June 11, BSTI withdrawn suspension of 26 companies, clearing them to sell their products, barely a month after it found the same products substandard.
In a circular issued on that, BSTI said these companies were again permitted to sell their products after they had managed to ensure the required standards.
It also said the decision to revoke the licences of 25 companies and suspend the licence of one was upheld.
Licences of all these companies were either revoked or suspended when BSTI in the first phase of tests found 52 out of 406 food items to be substandard.
BSTI on Tuesday also said that 22 of the 93 other food items, currently being sold in the market, were found substandard in the second phase of testing.
