Food authority closes down 18 outlets

Intensified inspections in Abu Dhabi also lead to more than 8,000 tonnes of food being destroyed.

ABU DHABI // Eighteen food outlets were closed down and more than 8,000 tonnes of food destroyed during inspections in the lead-up to Ramadan. The Abu Dhabi Food Control Authority said yesterday that it intensified inspections during July to ensure the risk to consumers during the holy month was minimised. During 1,783 visits to food suppliers, retailers and warehouses, 872 warnings were issued, 18 outlets closed down and 8,084 tonnes of food destroyed. A further 1,836 visits to hotels, butcheries and factories resulted in 156 warnings, but none of these establishments were closed down. More than a tonne of food was destroyed.

Mohamed al Reyaysa, the director of public relations and communications at the food authority, said its efforts "currently focus on consistent monitoring practices coupled with tireless awareness campaigns". "Both these together will produce results far better than enforcement drives alone," he said.
