Banda said the food products were destroyed at the Luwingu town council dump site.
“We would like to warn unscrupulous business people in Luwingu who are in the habit of buying food products which are already expired and bring them to Luwingu to start selling them at a cheaper price. We have information on the same and once we find them we will not hesitate to take them to court,” said Banda.
