Ensuring food safety

As part of its constant keenness to ensure the safety of food items and the compliance of all food outlets in the emirate with food safety standards, Dubai Municipality will intensify inspections of markets and food outlets, with the aim of monitoring restaurants, sweet shops, bakeries, popular kitchens and the fruits and vegetables market.

The inspections will ensure that they follow and meet all the food safety requirements set by the Municipality, given the increased consumption of foodstuffs during Eid Al Fitr and the increased public demand for the service of restaurants and markets, which requires monitoring and follow-up around the clock and intensifying inspection tours at sales outlets to ensure the safety of the food provided to all consumers, the municipality added.
