Abstract: The police seized a fake food distribution ring in the market, including megastores. The Public Authority for Consumer Protection (PACP) busted the illegal trade in coordination with the Public Prosecution. Expatriate workers were storing foodstuff in a rented building in Barka without relevant approvals and in an environment that did not meet any health safety requirements. The accused produced dried cheese and vegetables (used for pickles) in a warehouse, rooms used for staff accommodation and then sold them with labels (new production and expiry dates) to more than 15 outlets across Oman.
