Qatar’s Ministry of Municipality and Environment is in the front row when it comes to protecting the rights of consumers. Keeping true to its pledge of providing the best services to the residents Public Health Control inspectors from the Ministry have ordered the closure of a popular bakery in the Al-Wakrah municipality for at least 10 days.
The bakery has reportedly been penalised for serving sub-standard food items and flagrantly violating the hygiene code and thereby putting the health and well-being of patrons at risk.
During the holy month of Ramadhan Al-Wakrah Municipality constituted a special team with a purpose of conducting joint inspections of food outlets to ensure that only food items of good quality and proper hygiene are sold to the customers.
Representatives from the Ministry of Economy and Commerce, law enforcement officials from the North Security Department at the Ministry of Interior and municipality officials form the team.
Inspections of food outlets led by the health monitoring unit of the Al-Wakrah municipality have only intensified since the beginning of Ramadhan. Inspections to ensure health regulations are not being violated are being conducted by other Qatari municipalities as well.
Outlets that have been found guilty of not adhering to the health and hygiene regulations have been penalised by the concerned authorities.
