For the first time in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa, the process of geotagging of food-related business has been started. After Peshawar, geotagging will be started in Mardan and other districts.
Citizens say that officers should leave their offices and come to the field.
Geo-tagging has been launched in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa to check foodstuffs. The government’s move will help ensure quality food for citizens.
According to the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa Food Safety Authority, in just 27 days, 17,000 food-related businesses in Peshawar were geo-tagged at a cost of Rs 94,000.
According to the DG Food Authority, after Peshawar, geotagging has been started in Mardan. All data on food-related businesses in other districts will be obtained.
Geo-tagging will improve food inspection while ensuring that each unit is inspected at least once in three months. Citizens also appreciated the initiative and stressed the need for practical measures.
Geotagging will also increase the registration of food-related businesses with the Food Authority, and a toll-free and WhatsApp number has been issued for hearing public complaints.
