New mobile app to report food violations in Dubai

SHARE

Dubai: Dubai will soon introduce an app that will help residents report food safety violations on the spot to the civic officials from their mobile phones. The new mobile app will enable residents to report food related offences such as expired food item in a supermarket or spoilt food in a restaurant in real time directly by taking pictures or videos and identifying the location on an interactive map.

Currently, residents in Dubai have to call the Dubai Municipality on its toll free number for reporting such offences. With the new app, reporting will go directly and immediately into the authority’s case management system.

As per the notification, the inspector in charge can reach the location in time, begin investigation and take further action.
