PSMA criticises PSQCA's statement.

LAHORE, July 8 -- Chairman Pakistan Sugar Mills Association (Punjab Zone), Javed Kayani has condemned PSQCA statement that sugar produced in Pakistan is of substandard quality as it tantamount to blatant defamation of the sugar industry.

He said as a matter of fact the sugar is evaluated on the basis of ICUMSA (International Commission on Uniform Methods of Sugar Analysis) grading based on appearance and colour of sugar which is in no way injurious to human health and cannot be construed as the basis of substandard sugar.

He said, 'shakar' and 'gur' have ICUMSA of more than 4,000 in view of their appearance where sugar produced in our country is about 100 ICUMSA. Rest of the other parameters substantiate that sugar produced in Pakistan is compatible with any international standard.
