Strict checks have been carried out this year to flush out low quality food products, and those past their sell-by date. The National Food Agency has inspected various kinds of foods, including meat products, between January and July this year. According to the NFA spokesman Kakha Sokhadze, as a result of these inspections, 12 160 kg of meat has been destroyed, including over 5 tonnes of horsemeat. Imports of beef, pork, chicken, buffalo meat and frozen fish from certain countries have been scaled back. 361 manufacturing units have been fully inspected, including 24 meat processing plants and 36 slaughterhouses. The National Food Agency has not specified which companies have failed to pass the inspections, and what kind of penalties have been imposed on them.
