Are food safety standards being adhered to at the large supermarkets and hypermarkets in Tbilisi? A little while ago, the meat section at the hypermarket Carrefour was closed for a few days on the National Food Agency’s demand. A spokesman for the agency has told TV3 that no serious breaches of norms have been recorded at any other large supermarkets. He adds that safety and quality standards are usually best adhered to by the hypermarkets, although the National Food Agency provides each one of them with observations and recommendations. If the latter are ignored, or if the norms are breached, then the agency has a range of possible sanctions at its disposal, including the threat of closure. However, it has never had to resort to such extreme measures thus far.
