The Ministry of Economy and Commerce (MEC) has announced a new initiative aimed at supporting and bolstering the productivity of bakeries during Ramadan 1439 Hijri, by authorising bakeries to use subsidised flour in the production of all kinds of pastries and baked goods.
The initiative comes within the framework of the MEC’s preparations for Ramadan and its efforts to boost various commercial activities across Qatar.
In a statement on Monday, the ministry stressed that the initiative is a step towards enhancing the productivity of bakeries during the holy month of Ramadan, as the use of subsidised flour was otherwise restricted to the production of bread only throughout the year.
The MEC has said bakeries and cafeterias will be allowed to offer various items that are in high demand during the holy month. These include grilled kebabs, qatayef, sambousas, fatayer, sweets and other Ramadan-specific products.
“The announcement comes within the framework of initiatives launched by the MEC on the occasion of the holy month of Ramadan under the theme ‘#Aqal_Min_Al_Wajeb’ to bolster various sectors and business activities in Qatar, and to encourage bakeries and cafeterias to increase productivity and enhance the quality of their products in addition to easing consumers’ access to these products across different outlets,” the statement notes.
The ministry has unveiled a series of initiatives to mark the holy month under the ‘#Aqal_Min_Al_Wajeb’, theme, which is Arabic for ‘#The_Least_We_Can_Do’, in line with its duties towards the society. These initiatives are designed to cover all aspects of the MEC’s activities in terms of organisation, partnership and support and to raise awareness about various consumer and commercial topics.
The MEC will also launch several initiatives to regulate and bolster markets and intensify its inspection campaigns throughout the holy month of Ramadan and Eid al-Fitr.
