Saudi authorities have filed legal proceedings against the kingdom’s largest food producer for allegedly printing incorrect production dates.
The Saudi Ministry of Trade and Industry has filed three cases against National Agriculture Development Company (NADEC), the kingdom’s largest food producer, a ministry source told the Al-Eqtisadiah newspaper.
It is the third time the company has been warned by authorities and the latest cases relate to the placing of inaccurate production dates on dairy products and juices, the report said.
Around 100,000 bottles of produce were seized as part of the investigation.
The clampdown on produce comes as it was reported that Saudis are set to spend around SAR30bn (US$8bn) on consumer goods during Ramadan.
Salem Baajaja, professor of accountancy at Taif University, said residents normally spend about SAR15bn during Ramadan, but he predicted that this year it was set to double to SAR30bn by the end of the holy month, Arab News reported.
