Inspections are being stepped up in Dubai's food establishments ahead of Eid Al Fitr.

According to the Municipality, the checks will particularly focus on bakeries, roasters, confectionery shops, traditional kitchens as well as sweets and chocolate factories.

Officials will closely monitor the preparation, storage, transport and display of products.

They will also ensure that the outlets are taking adequate measures to prevent cross-contamination.

"In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, shoppers and workers in food establishments must strictly adhere to the precautionary measures by wearing masks and keeping social distancing, and the outlets must disinfect and sterilise the surfaces in contact with shoppers," explained Sultan Ali Al Taher, head of the food inspection section at the municipality.
