These industries are facing action as they were found not sticking label in their products, producing sub-standard foodstuff, operating without taking the license and manufacturing food stuff, water and beverages contaminated with coliform.

The Department of Food Technology and Quality Control has filed cases against 115 companies at the District Administration Office or the District Court concerned in Fiscal Year 2021/22, seeking legal action against them.
