The Royal Commission in Jubail represented by Property Department obliged all restaurants and cafeterias in Jubail Industrial City to make display lists that show the types of served meats and their countries of origin.
“In line with the Royal Commission in Jubail efforts to achieve the highest quality standards in food products safety, to enforce transparency, provide accurate information about products to consumers, and to maintain customers rights, the RC established stringent regulation to ensure full transparency between restaurants, kitchens and cafeterias on one hand and customers on the other”, the Director of the Property Department, Eng. Al Harkan said.
Al-Harkan added, “the RC worked to ensure that each shop that sells any type of raw meats (red, white or fish) and restaurants, kitchens and cafeterias displays a list in a visible place that shows the types of meats being sold or served in meals”.
He clarified that this mechanism helps the consumer to decide whether the meals’ prices are reasonable or not, as imported meats such as Sawakni, Australian and Brazilian meats are cheaper compared to local meats.
Eng. Al-Harkan also pointed out that the RCJ already started making inspection visits on all restaurants, kitchens and cafeterias to make sure they responded to this direction.
