In its role as the private sector's legal representative, the federation arranged the workshop. Several companies' representatives took part in the workshop that was arranged in association with the Ministry of Housing and Municipal and Rural Affairs.
The criteria about the construction and management of supply shops and central markets were examined throughout the session. Positive comprehension and adaptability on the part of the ministry in taking the remarks into account were also observed.
Six fundamental axes comprised the relevant controls and standards: product controls, supervisory controls over operations, food safety management system and control measures, food safety plan, legal registration of retail food establishments, and hygiene requirements in retail establishments.
