According to PFA, the place was host to fungal growth in raw carrots and turnips, unhygienic drainage system, improper screening of pickle processing area and other multiple health issues. The incident will definitely affect Shezan’s brand image and sales.

Food industry in Lahore has found itself in hot water as Punjab Food Authority (PFA) continues to seal outlets and slap heavy penalties, causing sales to slash down by a shocking 50 percent.

From Avari to Fat Burger, Pearl Continental to Gloria Jeans; none has been spared from  PFA’s nosy crack down against substandard conditions in the hotels, cafes and restaurants of the city.

A sudden backlash by the restaurant owners has erupted in Lahore. Claiming to slander them on social media, the outraged owners accused PFA of charging false accusations on popular eatery brands and exposing a deceptive side of food scene in Pakistan.
