Assignees appointed Department of Agriculture Forestry and Fisheries
18 April 2018 1:45 a.m.
Dear Portfolio Committee on Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries,
the Minister of Agriculture Forestry and Fisheries has assignees to conduct quality inspections on various regulated food products. It has been over a year since these companies have been appointed but the Black owned companies are facing serious resistance from the industries where they are supposed to conduct inspections.
The resistance is coming from White industry bodies. In the process these black companies are incurring serious costs without being able to do any work they are appointed for.
These matter needs political intervention as this is clearly a fight against transformation.
