The Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON) on Monday, April 4, 2016, sealed off a Kaduna yoghurt factory for producing in an unhygienic environment.

SON said the factory, TOSCO Standard Yoghurt also lacked ultra violet treatment for water and yoghurt.

The State Coordinator of SON, Alhaji Abba Bauchi, led the routine inspection of the factory.

According to him, the firm's environment is unhygienic and not good, adding that the wrong must be corrected.

"That is why we have to put the production of the factory on hold until all the wrong things are rectified.''

Bauchi said the inspection traditionally started with raw materials, production process and the environment.

He said some of the abnormality at the factory included lack of freezers to keep its product in good condition.

"The company lacks the good manufacturing practice.

"We have been advising the factory for over a year on the same issue but they did nothing.

"SON is to facilitate businesses, not to kill businesses," he said.

Meanwhile, the Managing Director of the company, Mohammad Ghazali, said it has been operating for over 20 years.

Ghazali said the company did not compromise the standard and quality of its product, assuring that the company will make amends as quickly as possible.
