According to Obeidat, ministers’ statements about the need to change consumption patterns is an indication of the government’s failure to control the market. He added that Jordan is self-sufficient in vegetables and poultry and that “the current prices are a scandal”.

Obeidat stressed that some three importers in Jordan control the import of plant oil, contending that the rise in prices in the country ranges from 22 to 60 percent compared to the global market, which is not acceptable and that, as a result, the Industry Ministry must take action.

He added that the government has the duty to protect the people, also saying that some statements about the international rise in prices are not accurate and that NSCP has studies to prove that.
