Mohammad Al-Obeidat, head of the National Society for Consumer Protection criticized Shamali for comparing poultry prices in Jordan with prices in other countries.

Obeidat noted that Jordan is self-sufficient in poultry and has a surplus, thus, prices must be lower, according to Jo24.

Obeidat said the minister’s statements “undermine the Jordanian people’s reasoning”, adding these remarks were made to get away with responsibilities and to manipulate the people to provide protection to the monopolists who control prices.

The poultry boycott is still going on, and people are committed to it despite the low prices in the market, and barely any purchases are being made on poultry.

Obeidat called on Shamali to set up poultry price caps in order for the boycott campaign to come to an end.
