Related Inspections in Pasumamula Village

In a recent inspection, inspectors discovered significant violations at Anitha Dairy Products and All Rich Dairy Private Limited in Pasumamula village, Ranga Reddy district.

At Anitha Dairy Products, inspectors discovered water stagnation, a foul odour, unlicensed production of masala buttermilk, and 12 cartons of seized raw material. Inspectors noted labelling deficiencies and found expired laboratory reagents. The lab’s microbiologist lacked qualifications, several food handlers were without gloves, and the factory lacked a visible FSSAI license and proper transportation licenses.

At All Rich Dairy Private Limited, inspectors confiscated 263 kilograms of unlabeled ghee, found rust on transportation trolleys, and water stagnation in the manufacturing area. Food handlers were without gloves, headgear, and aprons, and insect-proof screens were absent. The FSSAI licence was not visibly displayed, and medical fitness certificates and FoSTaC trainees were missing.


These inspections reveal significant lapses in hygiene practices at dairy units. These units must fix these issues right away to ensure the safety and quality of the dairy products they are selling. Regulatory authorities need to step up with stricter hygiene standards and regular inspections to prevent future violations. As consumers, we should be aware of the hygiene standards of dairy products and report any concerns. Food safety is everyone’s responsibility.
