Minister of Industry emphasis the protection of national food especially in packaging and warehousing


Minister of Industry, Dr. Hussein Hajj Hassan, convened a joint meeting yesterday with representatives of the Syndicate of Industrialists and the Syndicate of Food Industrialists as well as the manufacturers of jars, plastic barrels and bags.  The Minister insisted on the necessity of protecting national food production from factors that may jeopardize safety and quality as this has negative implications on citizen’s health and the reputation of the Lebanese industry. Hajj Hassan also emphasized during the meeting the important role of LIBNOR (the Lebanese Standards Institution) in setting mandatory standards for the production of plastic barrels of all sizes especially those used for packaging food such as pickled, olive oil, olives, wheat and other products so as to ensure that the packaging adhere to all safety and health standards and are specifically manufactured to be used for food packaging and storing.
