Eight butcher shops in Shuwaikh under investigation following surprise raids

The Ministry of Commerce and Industry has taken action against 8 butcher shops located in the Shuwaikh Industrial Area. Legal procedures are underway following a surprise inspection campaign aimed at ensuring compliance with regulations governing meat suppliers, according to reports from Al-Seyassah daily. The Ministry clarified that the impromptu inspections targeted several meat shops to assess their adherence to regulatory standards set by the Ministry of Commerce and Industry.

This initiative highlights the Ministry’s commitment to monitoring market activities, especially during periods of high demand like the upcoming holy month of Ramadan, to protect consumer rights and ensure the availability of goods. As a result of the inspection campaign, 8 violations were identified, including instances of commercial fraud related to the country of origin, reports of artificially inflated prices, and non-cooperation with Ministry inspectors by certain commercial establishments. The Ministry of Interior was notified of these violations, stressing the seriousness of obstructing regulatory efforts.

Emphasizing its dedication to enforcing consumer protection laws, the Ministry promised to intensify inspection efforts to combat such practices. Violators will be referred to the appropriate authorities for necessary action to uphold consumer rights. The Ministry urged consumers to report any violations or concerns through designated communication channels to facilitate prompt action and ensure market integrity.
