The owner was also operating without a business licence and authorisation.

The Environmental Health Department also confiscated several expired products on the shelves.

A similar operation was held in the Korsten business area in June. This led to the closure of 45 premises that did not have Certificates of Acceptability.

Waste disposal was also found to be a serious problem during that operation, as 60 of the businesses visited did not have a waste removal contract as required by the department. The officials also confiscated several products from seven shops in Korsten.

On completion of that operation, more than 60 business operators applied for Certificates of Compliance at the Environmental Health offices.

Grootboom said that more operations would follow in various parts of the Metro shortly.
