JFDA Director-General Nizar Mhaidat said on Sunday that the visits included 87 inspection visits, and that 54 visits to evaluate food trading establishments resulted in the closure of a number of sites.

The teams carried out about 300 visits to food establishments and factories during the first quarter of this year 2022, especially during the period before the holy month of Ramadan.

Mhaidat stated that the visits came as part of periodic monitoring efforts to ensure the safety and security of food traded in the Jordanian market by tracking food during all stages of its circulation.
