Six firms closed for shipping subsidized food
Kuwait’s Ministry of Commerce and Industry said on Wednesday that its
inspectors have closed six companies specialized in shipping food supplies as
they were planning to send locally-subsidized catering overseas. Legal measures
are being completed against these firms to refer them to the commercial
prosecution as they violated the executive regulation No 117 of 2013, the
ministry added in a press statement.
It stressed that it will not allow shipping these supplies outside the country.
It pointed out that its teams, in cooperation with Kuwait’s General
Administration of Customs, conducted investigations over several companies
across the country to make sure that they do not ship any subsidized commodities
outside. It affirmed that it will take legal measures against the violators.
