Ramadan food supply pledged

MANAMA: Industry and Commerce Minister Dr Hassan Fakhro yesterday toured Manama and Muharraq central markets.

Fruit and Vegetable traders confirmed the ample availability of both for the whole month of Ramadan.

Fruit and Vegetable supplier Redha Al Bustani affirmed that markets are loaded well above the market's needs.

Ibrahim Salman from Bahrain Livestock Company confirmed the availability of meat and said it would be enough for Ramadan, noting that next Friday a ship will arrive loaded with 21,000 Australian cattle.

Dr Fakhro also inspected Lulu Hypermarket in Dana Mall. The general manager assured him of the stability of food prices. He added that there are a lot of promotional campaigns for goods in high demand during Ramadan.

Thanks to Industry and Commerce Ministry's efforts to educate consumers, they are now not accumulating goods, but buying them day by day.
