Inspections of food establishments by the Health Control Section of the Municipal Control Department, Doha Municipality, in March resulted in the administrative closure of 47 such outlets for violating the relevant rules.
Following a surprise inspection campaign targeting restaurants and traditional food outlets across the country, the Ministry of Economy and Commerce (MEC) has slapped fines on three outlets.
More commercial and food outlets in the country have been shut down - temporarily as well as permanently - for flouting regulations.
The Health Inspection Section at Al Khor and Al Thakhira Municipality has continued inspection tours at the food outlets within its jurisdiction, adopting the motto 'Your safety is our top priority.'
Doha Municipality has intensified its inspection campaigns on all food outlets, distributors and facilities in preparation for the upcoming Eid al-Adha.
