Watchdog against sale of goods that have expired

The Hellenic Food Authority (EFET) declared its opposition on Tuesday to a new regulation that would allow supermarkets to sell products that had been kept beyond their sell-by date. EFET chief Yiannis Michas said it would damage people?s dignity and would make Greece a dumping ground for illegal goods.

?The [Agriculture] Ministry must suspend the implementation of this directive, which does not serve consumers or business,? said Michas.
