Prices of vegetable and fruit products, both domestic and imported, in the Qatari market have risen to possibly an unprecedented level with prices of some products jumping at a double rate, at best, the majority have risen from 30 to 40 percent.

According to Issa Mansouri, a Qatari trader and manager of a well-known food import company in Doha, Qatar’s vegetable and fruit market has been in high demand for over two weeks, contributing to a dramatic rise in prices, especially for imported products.

As a result, there has been a need to increase imports from the Jordanian market at levels higher than usual at such times of year.

Jordan’s vegetable products now account for a large share of the consumption of the Qatari market, with the Kingdom’s vegetables characterized by their high quality and very favorable competitive prices compared to their foreign counterparts.
