Legal measures have been initiated against the company and the entire quantity of spoiled foodstuff was disposed under the supervision of the municipality.

The ministry has been taking strict measures to ensure the citizens are consuming safe products.

Just last week, MME found a food store that changes the expiration dates while also using an unhealthy food packaging method.

Food inspections were intensified during Ramadan this year, with at least 220 site visits conducted in May alone.
