0

Punjab seems to be turning over a new leaf this Independence Day, Punjab Food Authority (PFA) has announced the ban on sales of various kinds of soft drinks at all educational institutions across Punjab starting the 14th August.

The authority has banned the sales of fizzy drinks and also banned manufacturers from supplying them to shops situated within 100 meters of the institutes, canteens, and cafes close to schools.

It is yet undecided whether such a policy will be applicable across Pakistan after being implemented throughout Punjab.

We will have to wait and see how quickly the new rules by the PFA are implemented across the province.

PFA Director General, Noorul Amin Mengal, has strictly advised to impose hefty bans on manufacturers and suppliers who breach the ban.

Over 120 countries in the world have imposed bans on soft drinks due to the harmful ingredients they contain. Soft drinks are said to be harmful to children and cause an adverse effect on their health.
