Investigation after army supplied with mouldy bread

Defence Minister Christophoros Fokaides has ordered military authorities to step up food inspections in all training centres after finding mouldy bread and false production dates on a bakery product.

The defence ministry said it will fine the supplier and will also look into terminating the contract.

The offending products were found at the Paphos centre, which is currently hosting hundreds of new recruits.

The minister immediately ordered a thorough inspection of all bakery products and asked the state’s health authorities to carry out checks at the company’s facilities.

The minister has ordered checks to be intensified in all training centres with special attention to perishable products like bread.

An investigation will also be carried out into the specific incident in Paphos. Due to this, the minister ordered the replacement of all officers involved.

The ministry warned that it will be particularly strict on catering matters and all involved in the supply chain will be held accountable when problems arise.
