A team of inspectors from the Competition and Consumer Protection Commission (CCPC) and Monze Town Council (MTC) have seized goods worth K7,121.96 in a joint inspection conducted in Monze district of Southern province. The inspection covered 12 business outlets at Monze’s Central Business District (CBD) and was conducted on 2nd December,2022.

The seized assorted beverages, foodstuffs and cosmetic products were expired and therefore not fit for human consumption. Selling or offering for sale expired or products not fit for purpose is against the Competition and Consumer Protection Act (CCPA) No. 24 of 2010 as well as the Food Safety Act No. 7 of 2019.

In light of the above, CCPC and MTC wish to warn all suppliers, retailers and distributors to cease and desist from selling unsuitable products which have exceeded their shelf life.

To ensure enhanced consumer protection in the country, CCPC in collaboration with MTC and other relevant stakeholders will continue to enforce the law in accordance with their respective mandates.
