HE the Minister of Municipality and Environment Engineer Abdulla bin Abdulaziz bin Turki al-Subaie, has stressed the important role played by local agricultural production in the country's food security programme.
Hassad Food has announced the launch of its newest initiative, Iktefa’, to provide support to unproductive local farms. Such unproductive farms represent more than 80% of registered local farms in the country.
The ongoing economic blockade on Qatar by some Gulf Arab states is a golden opportunity for local farms to unlock their full potential and focus on further increasing their production, a local farm owner has said.
Demand for Qatari products will continue even after the ongoing economic blockade on the country is over, with local farms and food manufacturers transforming the crisis into an opportunity to boost sales and expand to wider markets.
