Authority Suspends 80 Importers’ License




The licenses of 80 food product importers were suspended by the Food, Medicines, Healthcare Administration & Control Authority (FMHACA) for alleged violation of importing and distributing products deemed detrimental to the public health.

The Authority conducted unannounced inspections of various marketplaces and carried out quality tests on foodstuffs stacked on grocery shelves. During the inspections, most of the importers were found to hold expired licenses while others had stored food items unauthorised by their licenses, according to a statement by the Authority.

The Authority has destroyed over 4.3 million Br worth of illegally imported contraband items including medicines, medical supplies and food products. It has also approved and allowed the entry of medicines worth 4.6 billion Br in addition to 1.95 million tonnes of food products last fiscal year.
