Empty sweet box weighs 192g!

Empty sweet box weighs 192g!

Bangalis love sweets. In fact, the love is so intense that one cannot imagine celebrating any occasion without ‘rashogollas’ or ‘misti’ as they are locally known.

Imagine you are buying 1kg of sweet and paying 20 percent of the price for the box only. For example, if the sweet costs  Tk 100, the you end up paying Tk 20 for the box alone, which, by the way, comes free.

‘Bhai Bhai Sweet Shop’ in Shariatpur was cheating people this is how for quite some time now before they were caught red-handed during a drive by Directorate of National Consumer Rights Protection’s Shariatpur office.

The drive was conducted at Brac Cooperative Bazar, BK Nagar Ananda  Bazar and Nowdoba Bazar in Zajira upazila on Wednesday afternoon.

Three shops were fined Tk 8,000 for producing and storing food in an illegal process, cheating in weights, selling expired items and not displaying the price list.

Sujon Kazi, assistant director of Directorate of National Consumer Rights Protection’s Shariatpur office, said it was a regular drive.

“Three shops were fined Tk 8,000 under various sections of Consumer Rights Protection Act, 2009. Traders and wholesalers were given directive to refrain from using harmful chemicals on tomatoes and other vegetables at Brac Cooperative Bazar,” he added.
