LAHORE: The Punjab Food Authority (PFA) has prepared an emergency action plan to ensure the provision of clean drinking water to people across the province.

In this connection, the authority will collect the water samples of Wasa filtration plants and other drinking water sources for laboratory tests from Lahore, Multan and other divisions of Punjab.

This was informed by newly-appointed Director General of PFA Mudassar Riaz Malik while chairing a meeting with officials after taking over the charge of his office here on Saturday.

He vowed to make Punjab an adulteration-free province as per the vision of the chief minister as well as to ensure the provision of safe and quality food.

He said the food regulator would also collect the glutton-free edibles to check if they are glutton free or not besides starting drinking water sampling campaign.

He said the utmost priority is to bring about improvement and innovation in the food industry along with ensuring quality food supply to the masses.

He said PFA would make a comprehensive policy to eliminate the adulteration mafia and introduce laws following international standards.
