KEBS committed to fight counterfeits products in the market

08 August 2014, 10:21 Joseph Njung’eh

Nyeri - The Kenya Bureau of Standards (KEBS) is committed to track and remove all counterfeit products from the market, Mount Kenya regional manager Joseph Kimaru Keeru has said.

Keeru said the agency has partnered with businessmen and industries to wipe out counterfeit goods as they pose negative effects on human health.

Speaking at Green Hills Hotel, Nyeri during a standization workshop with stakeholders from local industries, Keeru noted that the objective of the exercise is to protect consumers from low quality products.

“We are empowering consumers on knowledge of identifying forged goods while also urging them to be volunteering information on counterfeit products to the authorities,” said Keeru.

Keeru noted that there are some individuals and groups who have ventured in producing counterfeits of fast moving goods including alcoholic beverages.

He advised retail traders to be tracking where the goods that they deal with are being manufactured.

“All alcoholic manufacturers should have testing facilities to detect level of methanol and any toxic substance in their products. By doing so, they will be able to confirm quality of their finished products before releasing them to the market,” he added.

He further advised food production industries to engage professionals in their activities.
