HYDERABAD: Management of several star hotels and famous food joints in the city have been reportedly indulging in mixing synthetic colours and toxic flavours to food items being served to customers. 

Days after the Anti Corruption Bureau (ACB) sleuths arrested the officials of State Food Laboratory in connection with alleged corruption, it was found that the state Food Lab officials have helped a number of famous hotel managements in carrying out the illegal activity by issuing false testing certificates even after the GHMC officials and police have registered cases. 

Sources told Express that during the investigation into corruption activities of state Food Lab officials, it was noticed that some star hotels and famous food joints in the city have been serving sweets, Biryani and other food items mixed with synthetic colours and flavours. Police and food inspectors of various local authorities have registered cases against owners/managements for serving such adulterated food to customers.    

“Food adulteration is being done by using synthetic food colours, substandard food quality and not mentioning batch and date of manufacturing of food items. However, staff take money from management and issue false testing certificates thus helping the owners evade punishment,” senior officials associated with the investigation agency said.
