HERMEL, Lebanon: Two dairy factories in east Lebanon were closed and sealed with wax by authorities Monday, security sources told the Daily Star.
The two factories, owned by Syrian nationals, were shut down by State Security forces in Zahle because they did not have a legal license, the sources added.
The first factory is located in Bar Elias town while the second in Deir Zannoun, they added.
As-Safir daily said that the two factories were closed for lack of legal licensing and also for failing to meet required health standards.
The factories also do not have a trademark and have been selling their products in the Lebanese market without any labeling.
