In a phone interview with Radio Hala, Barmawi highlighted the ministry's strategy of implementing price ceilings to curb market price hikes. He assured that current poultry prices remain stable, with occasional minor fluctuations.

Barmawi emphasized the ministry's commitment to safeguarding consumer interests by taking legal measures against unjustified price increases on poultry and other essential goods. The ministry regularly conducts field visits, particularly before Ramadan, to monitor market dynamics and ensure fairness for both consumers and traders.

In parallel, Khalil Amro, Assistant Secretary-General for Marketing and Quality Affairs at the Ministry of Agriculture (MoA), addressed concerns over poultry exports. Amro disclosed that poultry exports from the Kingdom have been suspended since February due to delays in importing feed caused by the crisis in the Red Sea region. To mitigate these challenges, the MoA has implemented measures to secure the necessary inputs for poultry production.
