Dubai supermarkets must provide non-Muslim foods cashier


By Staff

Supermarkets in Dubai are being urged to provide a separate cashier to deal with shoppers buying products that are not consumed by Muslims.

According to Dubai Municipality, supermarkets must provide at least one cashier foe the sale of non-Muslim foods following several complaints made by Muslims in the UAE.

Khalid Mohammad Sharif, CEO of the Food Control Department, was quoted as saying by Gulf News: “The signs put in the supermarkets are to display that products must be segregated since we received many complaints from people who did not think it was right to have the same cashier for non-Muslim foods and other foods.” More info
