BUSINESS SHORTS

Fines for selling spoiled food now higher

A REVISED law on food safety that increases fines for selling spoiled food came into effect at the beginning of May.

The law lets inspectors impose fines of up to Sk10 million (€299,000) for the sale of foodstuffs that endanger consumer health or are spoiled. The same fine may be imposed on retailers for selling goods after their expiry date.

Until now, the maximum fine was Sk1 million (€29,900).

The law also sets out other sanctions and fines that may be imposed according to how serious each violation is. If the same food safety violation is recorded repeatedly in the course of a year, retailers can be fined from Sk10 million to Sk50 million (€1.5 million).

If a business endangers consumer health with dangerous foodstuffs, its activities will now be evaluated according to the Criminal Code.
