Meat hygiene inspector in full service again
WILLEMSTAD - The meat hygiene inspection team of the Food Safety and Inspection Services is almost back to full strength. That means that grocery stores and convenience stores can again be inspected more frequently on the quality of the meat they sell.
According to the Acting Director of Food Safety Services Jennyfer Nicolina it was through retirement that they suddenly had a shortage in inspectors. Now there are three more trained inspector in service and a fourth has just finished his studies in the Netherlands.
The supermarkets and convenience stores can now count on twice a year or a more routinely visit from the inspectors. The stores get a sticker after such inspection. Green means that everything was good, white indicates that something is wrong and the department was closed.
