Minister of State for Municipal Affairs Mohammad Al-Jabri on Friday warned promoters of food unhealthy for human consumption would face firm punitive action.
Manipulators with food supplies, during a recent campaign, have been referred to the public prosecution, pending further legal action, said the minister while honoring a number of Kuwait Municipality's personnel. He praised the municipality's staff in the capital branch for their efforts that led to arrest of a number of merchants selling food products unfit for human consumption.
A recent campaign in Shuwaikh and Al-Rai resulted in confiscating and destroying 34.5 tons of bad food products. Eight grocery stores were shut down and 68 others received penalties.
Minister Al-Jabri, also Minister of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs, is the sole legislator in the cabinet.
