Sunil Duggal, chief executive officer, Dabur India Ltd (one of the country’s most trusted healthcare companies),flagged off the country’s first mobile honey testing laboratory from Dabur Research and Development Centre, Sahibabad in Uttar Pradesh’s Ghaziabad district.

During its journey, the on-the-go facility, which has been designed specially to check raw honey at the source to reduce adulteration in it and ensure that purity is maintained, will tap two major bee-keeping centres, namely Muzaffarpur in Bihar and Sundarbans in West Bengal.

The majority of the honey sold in the domestic market is impure, containing sugar-mixed ingredients and antibiotics. The samples will be tested in two types of equipment (Randox and Altino), which will provide an accurate on-the-spot result on the purity of the honey. This unique service will be cost-effective.

Duggalsaid, “We are pleased to launch this unique initiative, which will revolutionise the bee-farming landscape and honey testing modules in India. The average consumption of honey is increasing every day, and we have been witnessing the demand for a comprehensive yet convenient honey testing module.”

“Dabur’s mobile honeytesting lab will offer rapid and cost-effective services to test the quality of honey from the source, thereby cutting off adulteration. We expect to sample 250 batches in every city, and will keep adding more numbers and cities as per our observations,” he added.

“Today, honey is not just used as a home remedy, but an irreplaceable health supplement. The health-conscious Indian has added honey to his/her daily diet for good measure. Our mobile honey testing lab will act as a catalyst to answer all honey-related queries,”Duggal said.
