For starters: how "first world" is their government?
Is it a 3rd world corruption where a bit of bakshish will take care of all meaningful inspection and enforcement?

Are there laws against mixing other milk for them to enforce?

Also keep in mind camel milk is prevalent in arab culture
best bet is to reach out to local Jewish community and see what brands if any they trust as being kosher

Or maybe the country has very lax fines for mixing milk, for example: the max fine is $250.

Or maybe they have no issue at all with mixing milk

Unfortunately I've seen it promoted in Israel too:

But it's not mainstream
Yeah. BH.

After there were some people hospitalized after consuming, must have given it bad publicity, so didn't gain much traction.

Using your g-d given right of stupidity is an option, not a requirement. Please use sparingly.
