Sunita Dangol, the newly appointed deputy mayor of Kathmandu, is a figure as respected as the mayor Balen Shah himself. While the citizens can not stop praising Balen Shah for his incredible work, Sunita too has become the talk of the town right now with her ongoing food quality inspections.
Sunita Dangol has recently been busy working towards making sure that only edible products are being sold in the market. Sunita Dangol was seen along with a large team that included professional food technicians. The entire group of people looked determined to ensure proper food quality — and in case of significant code violations, take measures accordingly.
Here are some of Sunita Dangol’s major findings during her food inspection.
1. Sacks of rice full of insects
During Sunita’s food inspection, the team entered a store where they came across a number of poorly managed sacks of rice. Turns out, the store was holding clearly expired products that were full of insects and even the sacks had already worn out. The shopkeepers were accused of using chemicals like metacid in the rice they sold too. The police took away all the expired products they had in stock and further actions might be taken.
2. Tukucha local vegetable market
Sunita along with her team visited the local markets of Tukucha overseeing the quality of vegetables and meat being sold. During the search, Sunita found numerous shopkeepers who didn’t even know that they should be registering their businesses. She was seen calmly explaining the legal rules, and the importance of awareness, to the media and the local vendors.
3. Sangam sweets
People wouldn’t expect fairly well-known businesses to compromise on food quality. However, during the inspection, Sunita and her team came across Sangam Sweets using the same oil numerous times for frying their Samosa. While confronting the staff, they claimed that they never did this, and the day was exceptional since they were getting too many orders.
4. The Food Management & Trading Company Limited
The most shocking discovery during Sunita Dangol’s food inspection must be when organizations directly linked to the government weren’t the best at food quality management. After entering the Food Management & Trading Company Limited, Sunita Dangol came across rice sacks that were close to getting expired and packaging with smudged expiry dates. The deputy mayor and her team suggested they focus more on their packaging and immediately stock out the products close to expiring.
