The Commission imposed a fine of MK5 million to ETG Parrogate Cotton Limited for supplying products which did not comply with prescribed labelling standards, and failing to comply with the interim Cease and Desist Orders issued by the Commission.

This followed investigations which the Commission conducted which established that ETG Parrogate Cotton Ltd branch in Zomba was selling edible cooking oil Purola in 200 litre drums and 20 litre containers which did not provide expiry dates for the product. Further, the Commission also observed that the containers and the selling premises were generally dirty and unhygienic.
