Roughly 25% of shawarma shops were closed in Dubai

Authorities have closed down as many as 141 shawarma outlets for failing to comply with health and safety standards.

That makes 25 per cent of shawarma shops in Dubai, according to a senior official at the municipality.

“Out of the 573 shawarma outlets in Dubai, 425 were found to be compliant with our hygiene rules, while seven were in the process of applying the requirements,” said Sultan Ali Al Tahir, Head of Food Inspection Section in the Food Safety Department of Dubai Municipality.

The outlets were shut down after Dubai Municipality recently implemented stringent health and safety requirements, which includes the addition of 29 new conditions for the preparation and sale of shawarma in food establishments, such as cafeterias and small restaurants.

Food establishments had six months to make the necessary changes but those 141 shops did not address the problems.
