Fines for spoiled groceries to increase

The Slovak parliament on Tuesday, February 5, voted to give the green light to a new law on foodstuffs. The Pravda daily wrote in its Wednesday, February 6, issue that the amendment from the Agriculture Ministry reflects last year's negative findings from inspections of imported foodstuffs as well as some recent widely-publicised scandals, and doubles fines for violations of the law. Sanctions amounting up to €5 million are intended to protect consumers' health.
