Currently, Dabur expects to sample 250 batches in every city and will keep adding more numbers and cities.
Dabur India has launched Mobile Honey Testing Labs designed specifically to test honey samples at the source and reduce adulteration in honey and ensure that purity is maintained.
The lab will tap two major centres for bee farming in Muzaffarpur, Bihar and Sundarbans, West Bengal.
The Mobile Honey Testing Lab will allow bee-keepers to test the purity of their honey and avoid adulteration, since the majority of the honey sold in the domestic market is impure, containing sugar-mixed ingredients and antibiotics, the company said.
The samples will be tested in two types of equipment- Randox and Altino, which will provide an accurate on-the-spot result on the purity of the honey.
Sunil Duggal, CEO, Dabur India, said, "The average consumption of honey is increasing every day and we have been witnessing the demand for a comprehensive yet convenient honey testing module. Dabur’s Mobile Honey-testing Lab will offer rapid and cost effective services to test the quality of honey from the source, thereby cutting off adulteration."
Currently, the company expects to sample 250 batches in every city and will keep adding more numbers and cities.
Duggal added, "Today, honey is not just used as a home remedy but an irreplaceable health supplement. The health conscious Indian has added honey to their daily diet for good measures."
