The Ministry of Public Health (MoPH) has intensified inspection campaigns to cover all consumer complexes in the country during the holy month of Ramadan to check the safety and health of food products available in the market.
In a statement on Sunday, the MoPH said it has prepared a comprehensive plan to maintain tight control on these outlets. During the first stage of the initiative, health inspectors from the food safety and environmental health department conducted an inspection campaign at 11 consumer complexes to ensure that they complied with all relevant food health and safety regulations.
The second stage will cover 64 more complexes during Ramadan, taking into consideration the population density in each area. The campaign focuses on all factors directly or indirectly related to food health and safety, and its impact on consumers.
The inspection covers all the stages of food preparation - from receiving raw materials until preparing the final product and also including the storage and display of the food items. Sophisticated equipment are being used to assess the quality and safety of food.
