Lack of regulation and standardization in Nepal: Are you sure that the milk you drink in Nepal is an actual milk?


Lack of regulation and standardization in Nepal: Are you sure that the milk you drink in Nepal is an actual milk?

Me and my brothers were talking about condition of Nepal. My brother Pawan asked "Are you sure that the milk you drink in Nepal is an actual milk?". This question from Pawan made me think a lot. I remember when I was back in Nepal there used to be a lot of news regarding Product Quality of DDC Nepal. I opened and searched for the news regarding DDC and there were a lot of news and contoversies:

Govt-run DDC found to have sold ‘expired’ and ‘inedible’ 194,975 kg butter to the public

Though DDC is a state owned company, it lacks regulation and inspection. There is no standard for selling milk in Nepal. There is same problem in locally produced alcohol and restaurants. In Nepal there are no safety standards to open a restaurant or any other businesses. If I want to open a restaurant I could just register my company and start it easily. There are no inspections from health officials. You may say that Nepalese government has a lot of issues to look into and this is not important right now. The main thing is this impacts the health of general public which can be a serious problem.


 The problem is not only in food and beverage industry but there are problems in other sectors too. One of my friend messaged me and told me that her phone was damaged because of a damaged charger. This reminded me that there is no national standard for electric plugs and electrical appliances. We can see all types of electric plugs in Nepalese market. This is an issue that can cause serious fire hazards. There is no regulating body like FCC to in Nepal. Because of which Low cost ,Low quality electrical devices are sold in Nepal.  

There was a news in social media about baby electrocuted by a cellphone charger. This was when there was no fast charging technology and only 5 watt chargers were used in most of the phones. I didn't believe that news because only 5 watt current cannot kill a person. But now when I think about regulation and standardization in Nepal i think that the news was true.

EU to force Chinese online vendors to play by its rules



I hope that some day strict regulation and standardization rules will be implemented in Nepal.

Yes the milk you drink is real but is it edible? The main question remains here.
