(Business in Cameroon) - The Cameroonian Ministry of Commerce informs that its fraud prevention and control units have just received smartphones and tracking software to improve control techniques for some manufactured products, including wines and spirits.
These teams were deployed on November 14-15 in Douala, Bafoussam, and Yaoundé to ensure the conformity of the stamping on wines and spirits in accordance with Decree No. 2010/0483/PM of 18 March 2010, setting the procedures for labels on some manufactured products.
With the said tracking software, fraud prevention and control units can trace the information on the sticker from purchase to its final destination. If there is no accurate traceability information on the sticker, the product on which it is stamped is considered to be of dubious origin.
“At the end of this operation, a large quantity of wine and liquor was seized and transported to the Ministry of Commerce. These operations reflect public authorities’ commitment to fighting all forms of illegal trade and unfair competition,” the ministry indicates.
