Fast foods must comply - Polye

Polye said he understood authorities had enforcement units within their departments but funding was a major hurdle.

And he has blamed the government for undermining their work by way of cuts in funds.

He said this when commenting on a media report, quoting fast-food shops breaching Food and Sanitation Act.

Polye said tougher penalties must be imposed on those caught.

He was appalled by the manner in which fast-food bars prepare food and the condition of kitchen facilities.

Polye described this as ‘inhuman and lacking corporate obligation.’
