Ramsaran’s Dairy Products Ltd says it has “taken urgent and active steps to part ways” with an individual who recently posted offensive comments on social media.
In a statement, it acknowledged that the individual is a close family member of the company’s owners.
It adds however that such views are in no way reflective of its views or beliefs as a company.
The social media comments sparked criticism from citizens who called for a boycott of the company’s products.
It also prompted some businesses to announce that they would stop selling Ramsaran’s products.
