MUSCAT : The Dhofar Municipality has announced its intent to implement electronic control of food activities in the Governorate, and has called on targeted activities to place a minimum 32-inch television screen in the dining halls, so that customers can view food and beverage preparation in real time.
As part of the first phase of the project, restaurants, cafes, bakeries and kitchens are required to install HD surveillance cameras at food and beverage preparation areas. All the existing activities that targeted in the first phase will be given a deadline from May 15, 2023 to August 15, 2023, to implement this decision.
