| | No Comments

STAFF REPORT ISB: The Trading Corporation of Pakistan (TCP) has rejected sugar stocks of two mills as the laboratory tests declared these stocks as “not fit for human consumption.”

“After receiving the laboratory reports, overall some 3,280 tons of sugar stocks have been rejected by the state-run grain trader,” sources told this scribe. The TCP has also asked the mills to provide fresh stocks as their earlier samples have been found substandard .

However, despite several requests, both the mills have failed to provide any other lot of the commodity for re-sampling. They explained Baba Farid and Pattoki Sugar Mills were agreed to supply sugar to the TCP against its sugar procurement tender. Both mills submitted the details of stocks and accordingly, the commodity samples were collected from stocks provided by PCSIR.
