Togo : Government officially bans import, sale and use of bromate

(Togo First) - Togolese authorities have issued a decree forbidding the import, sale and use of bromate all over the country. This decision follows an alert given by the local development and food organization (OADEL) warning that the compound, which is often used by bakeries, has been linked to cancer.

Hence, any person found guilty of infringing the new decree is liable to a fine ranging between XOF10,000 and XOF500,000. Moreover, random inspections will be carried out to ensure compliance to the new rule.

Tata Ametonyenou, executive director of OADEL, lauding the initiative declared: “This could over time lead to compulsory inspection of bakeries, in order to protect consumers.”
