“Yummo is an ice cream brand. Various manufacturers supply ice cream to them. Valco Industries in Hadapsar also supplies ice cream to them. We have taken some samples from their unit. Some other units, including the one from Indapur, are also there. They have been authorised to produce ice cream by the FSSAI.”
