The Health Promotion Division of the Honiara City Council is currently working with stakeholders to dispose of expired goods in the Honiara shops.
Chief Health Inspector, George Titiulu told SIBC News the division has received a large number of reports about expired goods sold in the Honiara shops.
He says the division is currently working with the Price Control Unit of the Ministry of Commerce to dispose of the goods.
“We are seizing all expired food items from the shops and destroy them at the dump site.”
Mr. Titiulu says penalizing the shops will depend on the nature of the reports they receive.
