MBS on Monday said the hotel has been stopped from offering its services to the public due to non compliance with hygienic conditions.

Malawi Standard Number 21; Food and Food Processing Units – Code Of Hygienic Conditions- empowers the bureau to close down institutions that do not comply with stipulated hygienic conditions.

“The MBS wishes to advise the general public against patronizing Shire Highlands Hotel situated in Limbe until the hygienic conditions have been improved and the suspension lifted by the MBS,” reads in part MBS’s statement.

Shire highlands is a second hotel to face the wrath of MBS following Malawi Sun Hotel and Conference Centre Bakery situated at Ginnery Corner in Blantyre which was also closed
down by the bureau last week due to non compliance to hygienic conditions.

Recently, MBS also suspended operations of Bakers Pride (New) Bakery (bread and Bun)
located in Area 3, behind Lilongwe Post Office due to non compliance to hygienic conditions.

Superior Halaal Meats Butchery, Superior Food Market – Catering Services, and Superior Food
Market Bakery (Bread and Bans), Situated at the North Gate Arcade along the Masauko
Chipembere Highway in Blantyre was also recently closed down by MBS for failing to comply with hygienic conditions.

And in the past week, MBS in conjunction with Police, Health and Environmental officials disposed off Spirituous liquor packed in plastic bottles at the Mwanza district disposal site as well as in Muloza in Mulanje district.
