Hundreds of soft drinks and soda cans were removed from the local retail shops to be destroyed later because they were expired.

The Head of the Food Division from the Ministry of Agriculture – Metui Falesiva says, other food items were removed including biscuits, chicken legs, bacon and to name a few.

He adds, most of these items were identified at the Asian shops and few were local shops.

This was the outcome of a joint working effort carried out by the Food Division with related stakeholders to ensure that all food items in the shops are safe for consumption.

These food products are to be destroyed at Tapuhia Dumping site soon.
