Description

The Ministry of Commerce and Industry provides a number of e-services to the owners of bakeries producing Arabic and local bread. These services include issuing, amending, renewing, temporarily suspending, as well as reactivating and canceling a bakery license.

Applicants can also apply to increase in their monthly flour quota, request a flour delivery and seek an approval for the distribution of flour.

Online Instructions

For Bakery Licensing Services:

  • Submit the request (issuing, amending, renewing, temporarily suspending, reactivating or canceling a bakery license).
  • Determine the type of amendment required, and bakery's license to be modified (in the case of a license amendment request).
  • Determine the applicant's status, the bakery's license to be suspended and the reasons for suspension (in the case of requesting a temporary suspension of the license).
  • Determine the license of the suspended bakery, and enter the re-activation data of the bakery license (in the case of requesting a license reactivation).
  • Determine the bakery's license to be canceled, and the reason for canceling the license (in the case of requesting to cancel the license).
  • Fill out all required data and submit the required attachments.
  • Pay the due fees, and print the license.

For Flour Services:

  • Submit the request (increase monthly flour quota, request a flour delivery, or seek an approval for the distribution of flour).
  • Determine the applicant's status, the bakery's license and the quantity (in the case of requesting an approval for the distribution of flour).
  • Determine the bakery's license and enter the required increase data (in case of requesting to increase monthly flour quota).
  • Submit the bakery license number and specify the amount to be received (in case of requesting flour delivery).
  • Fill out all required data and submit the required attachments.
  • Pay the due fees.

Additional Information

  • Once the application is submitted, it is reviewed by the competent authority at the Ministry, which dispatches inspectors to examine the bakery site. After that, the department's director gives the approval.
  • To renew a bakery license, the commercial registration and the trade license have to be valid and the commercial registration shall not be seized.
  • The request for increasing the flour quota gets either approved or rejected, while specifying the nature of the increase, in terms of whether it’s a continuous/regular one, or a temporary one for only the current month.
  • In case the request of increasing the flour quota got approved, the bakery owner can benefit from this, through requesting an approval for flour distribution and/or flour delivery.
  • Flour fees must be paid through Doha Bank in case of seeking an approval for the distribution of flour.
