Seizure of more than 11 tons of illegally stored food products

A total of 11 tons and 800 kilograms of foodstuffs, including expired products, were seized in the Yacoub El Mansour district in Rabat, after a tour carried out by the commission for quality control, monopoly and price escalation.

This intervention, which concerns food products including three tonnes of flour, legumes, dried fruits and spices, is part of a proactive approach, taking full advantage of the current situation marked by rising prices and to combat monopoly practices which affect the quality of foodstuffs and the safety of consumer products.

On this occasion, the head of the economic affairs division at the Wilaya of Rabat-Salé-Kénitra, Hamid El Kostali stressed that the warehouse does not have an authorization from the competent authorities to store foodstuffs, and does not meet not the technical and sanitary conditions for the storage of consumable products.

The warehouse is experiencing a very intensive storage situation, likely to affect price stability in the market, he added.

This intervention took place in the presence of representatives of local authorities and the National Food Safety Office (ONSSA).
