Supplies Egg Powder to Major Biscuit Brands
As per the Geo TV report, the Lahore-based plant is reportedly the only egg processing unit in Pakistan. It supplies egg powder to all major snack companies and biscuit brands. Yolk and egg whites are separated from the eggs to make the powder.
According to the Director General PFA a total of 1.1 million eggs were recovered from the factory. Their collective worth was Rs. 15 million. He said that some of the eggs were in such a bad state that chicks had hatched from them.
This isn’t the first time this factory was raided. The factory was sealed a few days earlier but it was reopened illegally and work continued as usual.
Now the factory has been sealed again and a case is in the process of being filed against the owners.
