CPA To Protect Consumers From Any Underhand Tactics
Category: Kuwait

Consumers will be protected from all practices that are detrimental to their well-being, head of the Consumer Protection Agency (CPA) Bandar Al-Lafi said on Sunday. Al-Lafi made the remarks in joint meeting between the Ministry of Commerce & Industry, local livestock company Al-Mawashi, the Public Authority for Agricultural Affairs & Fish Resources (PAAAFR) and CPA, as requested by His Highness the Prime Minister Sheikh Jaber Al-Mubarak Al-Hamad Al-Sabah.

Moreover, he spoke of CPA’s sternness to use the full force of law to prevent the sale of goods at ballooning prices, noting that CPA also aims to protect the market from ill tactics, including measures designed to establish a monopoly.

Meanwhile, Chairman of Al-Mawashi Company Bader Al-Subaie allayed concerns over a dearth of red meat in the food market, saying that the company will provide around 200,000 cattle to meet soaring demand for mutton during the holy month of Ramadan. Similarly, CEO of Al-Mawashi Osama Boodai said that the company is committed to efforts to boost food security through producing a vast array of fresh and processed meats.

On a related note, Assistant Undersecretary for Consumer Protection and Inspection Affairs at the Ministry of Commerce & Industry Eid Al-Rashidi said that the ministry has launched a probe into a deal made by some livestock companies to temporarily ban the import of cattle. He also urged consumers to dial the hotline (135) for any queries or assistance.
