Abstract: State Minister for Rural Development and Co-operatives Division Md Mashiur Rahman Ranga has said that legal action will be taken against these companies. At a media conference on Sunday at the Secretariat, he presented the packets of milk manufactured by seven of those firms that looked nearly identical to the Milk Vita’s milk packets’ colour and size. These companies - Aftab, Dairy Fresh, Dhaka Prime, Milk Fresh, Ultra Milk, Real Milk and Pura Milk – were making their packets look like Milk Vita’s in order to deceive customers and boost sales, Ranga said. He said these firms were trying to confuse the consumers.
