Maamba warned of strict punitive measures against entities manufacturing, importing and supplying non-compliant products.

“ZCSA will continue conducting enforcement and public education activities across Zambia to ensure that only safe products are supplied to consumers,” he said.

Maamba also advised consumers to purchase beverages from reputable suppliers and avoid those from questionable sources, as consuming unverified products can pose significant health and safety risks.
