Dubai steps up food outlet inspections ahead of Ramadan


Authorities in Dubai will be keeping a close watch on health and safety standards in food outlets during Ramadan.

The checks are mainly focused on the preparation, storage, transportation and display of food items.

Inspectors will also monitor the quality and sourcing of meat and ensure staff at food outlets are complying with personal hygiene standards.

Customers can submit complaints and feedback around the clock via the municipality's call centre 800900.
