Authorities in Nepal on Sunday confiscated 77 containers of goods manufactured by Dabur Nepal, the Nepal subsidiary of the company, while they were being exported to India.
Officials of the commission for investigation into abuse of authority (CIAA) seized the goods, mostly containing Real brand of the fruit juice, at the Sirsiya dry port in Birganj bordering India.
Reports quoting CIAA official Himalaya Shrestha said the goods were confiscated after receiving a tip-off that some of the products in the containers were past their expiry dates.
A team of officials also reached the Dabur Nepal factory in Tokani to take stock of goods stored there.
There is no official statement from Dabur authorities yet.
Dabur Nepal manufactures nearly 40% of the total Real juice for the company. Some portion of it is sold in Nepal while the rest is exported to India. The company has been facing problems in production and export to India due to the blockade at major border points by Madhesis protesting against Nepal’s new constitution since September.
Dabur had informed the Bombay Stock Exchance (BSE) in October that sale of Real juice in India could get temporarily affected due to problems in supply due to the border blockade.
