These Are the Only Safe Milk Brands to Use in Pakistan [Updated]

Last year, keeping the health and safety of public in mind, Punjab Food Authority (PFA) collected the samples of UHT/Tetra Pack milk products in March, August, and December, respectively.

The PFA sent those samples to ISO-17025 Certified Laboratories SGS, PCSIR and Intertek in order to check the quality of boxed milk on the basis of chemical, biological, and physical perimeters.

The laboratories conducted the analysis of various brands based on the following categories:

  1. UHT milk samples
  2. Samples of pasteurized milk
