Qudah added, in a statement to Al-Mamlaka TV, that the increase came after the corporation introduced price controls on all commodities, especially basic goods such as sugar, rice, vegetable oils, powdered milk, frozen chicken, canned goods, and all food commodities.

He said that, as a result of the decision and the general rise in prices, there is a marked difference between the market’s prices and those of the corporation.

The institution is not a store, but rather one of the government’s tools to control prices, meet market needs, and support citizens, especially in light of the decline in purchasing power and high inflation, Qudah said. The corporation therefore buys large quantities of staple goods well in advance.
