The Ministry of Commerce and Industry (MoCI), and the Ministry of Municipality and Environment in cooperation with Widam food Company have launched a joint national initiative to promote local production of sheep meat and to subsidize the prices during the holy month of Ramadan this year.

MoCI stated that selling according to the new subsidized prices will start from tomorrow, Monday to the end of the holy month of Ramadan, in order to ensure the availability of sheep meat for citizens at reasonable prices, and to control prices, taking into account the balance between supply and demand in the markets.

MoCI also pointed out that it has been agreed with Widam food Company to provide around 30,000 heads of local and imported sheep, to be sold at subsidized and reduced prices to citizens (2 sheep to each citizen) after providing the Qatari ID in the Wadam company slaughterhouses at Al-Wakra, North, Al-Khor, Mazroua and Al-Shahaniya.
