First eatery flouting food safety violations named on Baladiya’s site

Manamah bakery

With reporting from Nada Badawi

A small bakery in Al Wakrah has become the first eatery named by Qatar’s Ministry of Municipality and Urban Planning for violating the new food law.

Al Manamah bakery was closed yesterday for three weeks after expired food was found in its shop, the MMUP said in a statement in Arabic on its website.

Using expired food is a violation of the new Law No. 4 of 2014, which was approved in February.

The legislation includes possible fines and jail terms for offenses such as selling expired or rotten food, but neither of these punishments appear to have been applied in this instance.

The inspection of the bakery took place on April 15, and after a report was filed, Manamah was closed yesterday, according to the MMUP’s Twitter account.

(Translation: Al Wakrah Municipality shut a food facility for violating the food law – for more details, please visit the ministry’s website).

The government had previously announced that it would begin naming and shaming offending restaurants starting on Friday, April 25. So far, the announcement has only been posted in Arabic, and it is not immediately clear if the information will be translated into English.

I’m sure I’ve seen several places named and shamed in the arabic papers earlier this year. They might have been other businesses and we’re reported by the ministry of commerce. I remember it was a place which sold ladies hair products and another that sold fake electronics..

How do I report a restaurant? My wife and I got food poisoning at a restaurant last month but we have no idea how to report it.

Before you jump and report the restaurant, be sure that it was them that poisoned you in the first place. Many people have no idea that a trip to remove cash from an ATM can be more infectious than a meal!!!!! Never mind the fact that the gestation period for infection can be much longer than the 24hrs or less most people think it is. I am all for hygiene control, but don’t target a business unless you are confident that your poisoning is exclusively originating from the outlet. Swab ANY door handle in ANY restaurant in this city or swab any automated credit card machine, you will find potential infection……….

Now is your chance to open Samosa shop in Wakrah. You will earn big money as the only competitor is gone.
