Qatari traders and importers note that they have become accustomed to witnessing this high and unusual demand in local markets for various types and varieties of food products, particularly those imported from Jordan, every year during Ramadan and the days leading up to it, Al-Ghad reported.

In statements on Saturday, they explained that this trend is common among consumers who seek high-quality products reflecting cultural diversity, taste, and dietary preferences, especially with regards to Jordanian food products.

Grocery trader Omar Al-Hamidi attributed this rise in demand for Jordanian food and consumer goods to their reputation and high quality over the years, instilling great confidence among all consumer segments in Qatar and most markets in the region and globally.

He noted that as Ramadan approaches, the increasing demand for Jordanian products in Qatari markets is expected, with intense shopping to meet the needs of the holy month, particularly for iftar and suhoor meals.

Meanwhile, the director of an import and export company observed that the abundant presence of Jordanian goods in Qatari markets reflects the significant and growing level of development in trade and economic relations between the two countries, adding that Jordanian companies are playing a tangible role in meeting the diverse needs of the Qatari market, especially in consumer and food goods.

Rashid Al-Ansari, working in the food trade, anticipated the continued high demand for Jordanian food products throughout Ramadan in Qatari markets, noting that consumers are enjoying a rich shopping experience, acquiring high-quality products.

He affirmed that Jordanian food products are widely popular in Qatari markets, particularly before Ramadan, and residents express satisfaction with the diversity they bring to their options. Confident in their high quality and distinctive taste, they consider them a valuable addition to their Ramadan table.

A Qatari citizen also expressed that most consumer segments in Qatar are accustomed to Jordanian consumer goods, believing that these products, in addition to being distinguished by high quality and moderate prices, also reflect consumers' interest in transitioning towards healthy and sustainable options during Ramadan.
