With their exceptional quality, distinct flavor, and moderate pricing, Jordanian dates enjoy widespread popularity among various consumer segments in Qatar, experiencing significant demand and a notable presence in Qatari markets.

The import of Jordanian dates by Qatar is experiencing a steady upward trajectory, fueled by the escalating demand for the diverse range of dates produced and marketed by Jordan.

These dates have emerged as a registered Jordanian trademark, symbolizing unparalleled quality and excellence, thus garnering substantial interest among Qatari consumers and residents alike.

Numerous Qatari merchants, importers, and officials from active import-export enterprises operating in the Qatari market have reported a surge in the import rates of dates from Jordan, aiming to meet the escalating demand attributed to the growing number of residents and visitors in Qatar.
