The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) says it has clamped down on substandard and unregistered bakeries and water factories in Bonny LGA of Rivers.

In a statement on Wednesday, the agency said in a three-day operation, its operatives, in collaboration with the police and military, closed down 10 bakeries and eight illegal table water factories in the state.

The agency said some of the factories were operating in unhygienic conditions and using popular brand names without proper authorisation, adding that they were found producing fake and unwholesome products.

“The operation was prompted by meticulous investigations, surveillance, and consumer complaints regarding substandard products in the area,” the statement reads.


“Many of the bakeries lacked proper registration with NAFDAC, while others had expired licenses or had relocated without notifying the Agency.

“Additionally, some water factories were found to be operating without necessary filtration equipment and were not adhering to standard production processes. 

“NAFDAC has urged non-compliant producers to renew their licenses promptly and warned of consequences for those who flout regulations, underscoring its commitment to ensuring consumer safety and product quality.”
