Malawi Bureau of Standards closes Peacock, Pacific hotels food departments

Malawi Bureau of Standards, enforcers of food standardisation in the country, have closed down food departments of two popular and upmarkets hotels in Lilongwe.

Golden Peacock Hotel

The bureau officials confirmed they have closed down the food departments of Peacock Hotel, owned by Chinese and an Asian owned Pacific Hotel in the Capital City, Lilongwe.

They said the food offered to customers at the two hotels did not meet the standards of the Malawi Bureau of Standards.

However, as at five in the afternoon, the two hetels were serving food, blatantly ignoring the ban issued earlier on the day.

Hotel officials refused to comment on the matter, saying they had not yet received the order from the Malawi Bureau of Standards to stop serving food to clients.

MBS should also come to Capital Hill Restaurant. It has no running water. Madzi amakatunga pa gate yaing’ono as you going to Area 10. I cant just imagine imvu umene umakhalako ku kitchen kwaoko. Do they wash the plates with clean water? How about the toilets. I understand mwini wake amagwira ntchito ku Tourism. They are busy kuyendera some other hotel but come to Capital Hill in the morning. You will find the workers drawing water from the tap where drivers wash their cars every morning. Zisamakomere mbuzi kugunda galu. Come and find out

Bwanji osaletsa thobwa lamumsewuli ndi timadzi tammaplastic if it is about health. Also close the water wells in the villages and all those restaurants at Blantyre, Lizulu (wa Lilongwe) and Tsoka market
