    LAHORE: The Punjab Food Authority on Wednesday claimed to have sealed one of the outlets of California-based fast food chain, Fatburger, in Lahore owing to “spoiled meat and vegetables” present in their kitchen.

    According to a Facebook post by the authority, Director Ayesha Mumtaz sealed Fatburger’s MM Alam Road, Gulberg branch owing to spoiled meat with a “pungent smell, rotten vegetables in cold storage, as well as rancid oil being used for frying purposes”.

    Established under the Punjab Food Authority Act 2011 to ensure availability of safe and wholesome food for human consumption, the authority’s basic purpose is to lay out standards for food articles and to regulate their manufacturing, storage, distribution, sale and import.

    Read: For Fatburger, Lahore’s ‘flagship’ outlet will be a trendsetter

    Fatburger – a Santa Monica, California-based hamburger chain – opened its biggest flagship outlet globally in June 2013 in Lahore.

    In January, Fatburger’s franchiser BIL Foods entered the Pakistani market in the midst of the fast food boom and opened its first outlet in an upmarket Karachi mall.

    Authorities have become more vigilant after a teenage girl lost her life after having a meal from an eatery in Karachi earlier in February. Thirteen-year-old Kinza died due to food poisoning in District Central after she ate a burger from fast food joint Dilpasand.

    Restaurants to be graded, grades to be displayed at gates: CM Punjab

    LAHORE: (Web Desk) – Chief Minister Punjab has on Saturday announced that the restaurants all over Punjab will be graded on the basis of standard of food, security, cleanliness, quality of water etc. and the grades will be displayed at the gates of all the restaurants.

    In a Facebook post on his official page, CM Punjab announced that the restaurants will be graded and the stickers of their grades will be displayed on their gates so that the people are able to select the restaurant in accordance with the quality of food and atmosphere that they provide.

    The post said that the restaurants offering finest quality will be given grades A and B. A special monitoring unit at the CM Office will collaborate with the Punjab Food Authority will execute this idea.

    Shahbaz Sharif’s official page said that the idea was given to the CM by a Facebook fan in a message on his page. This not only is a perfect idea but also a demonstration of the power of social media and the role it can play in the empowerment of the people. It clearly shows that even a common man can be effective through social media. And it also shows that it is an easy model for the governments to get public feedback on their governance and improve it accordingly.

    The idea, if implemented, will not only allow the people to choose the restaurant according to their quality but will also augment an atmosphere of competition among the restaurants to offer best quality food and excellent atmosphere in order to keep their customers and win over the new ones.

    Punjab Food Authority raids are going on everywhere in Punjab and Lahore, they are doing a superb job, capturing shoppers selling bad food and overly-priced.

    Well done Punjab Food Authority with your work !!!

    Why only franchises? Why not those local mithai-walas and other food outlets as well?
    Anyways, good step for public health.

    I am glad Punjab Food Authority is sealing/issuing citations to these Multi National Fast Food Chains, they should also focus their attention towards other local eateries which are selling poison to public
