Iraq’s Ministry of Trade has banned the import of some food products and beverages from Jordon due to what it describes as “health and safety concerns.”
Local media reports say the Ministry identified genetic modification and the excessive use of food additives as the reasons for the ban on some products.
The President of the Jordanian Foodstuff Traders Association, Khalil Haj Tawfiq, said he believes the ban is an attempt to tarnish Jordanian industries.
