Goods valued at a hundred thousand Kwacha have been confiscated from 746 trading premises countrywide by the Competition Consumer Protection Commission (CCPC).

This is due to their failure to meet the provision of the Competition Consumer Protection Commission Act.

The goods seized were for the period of January to September this year.

CCPC Director Brian uttered that the goods seized were not according to the CCPC Act and Public Health Act and were expired.

Traders on the market are being encouraged to import goods that meet the stipulated standards.

Meanwhile, of the two thousand five hundred cases that the commission must resolve being the 2019 target, the commission has successfully resolved two thousand and forty-two consumer complaints brought to it by consumers across the country.
