Phuket Commerce Office ensures vegetarian food stalls and restaurants show food pricing transparently

Phuket –

The Phuket Commerce Office inspected vegetarian food stalls and restaurants to make sure they show food prices transparently ahead of the anticipated vegetarian festival. The punishment for not showing clear food prices is a fine up to 10,000 baht.

The inspection today (September 23rd) was on Ranong Road near the Jui Tui Shrine in Phuket Town which has more than 100 stalls and restaurants. There are many vegetarian stalls and restaurants that have started to sell vegetarian food before the nine-day vegetarian festival begins on September 26th.

The annual Phuket Vegetarian Festival was officially announced which will be held for nine days from September 26th to October 4th.

Ms. Woranit Apiratjirawong, the Phuket Commerce Office director, told the Phuket Express, “We are making sure that food sellers show food prices and are not taking advantage of customers to increase vegetarian food prices during the vegetarian festival. Any food seller who does not show the food price will be fined up to 10,000 baht.”

The TAT Phuket division is expecting to welcome 200,000 tourists which will generate 3.4 billion baht during the vegetarian festival.
