The Ministry of Economy and Commerce (MEC) conducted an inspection campaign at the Doha Central Market on Tuesday to coincide with the launch of its initiative on selling subsidised sheep for Qataris on the occasion of Eid al-Adha.
The campaign, which will continue until the conclusion of the initiative on August 23, aims to ensure that the subsidised sheep reach their targeted customers and the suppliers are committed to provide the same in accordance with the set standards and conditions.
The initiative is being implemented for the sixth consecutive year. The MEC has fixed the price of local sheep weighing 40kg and above at QR1,200 per head, while Arabic sheep of 45kg and above will be sold for QR1,100 per head.
The subsidised sheep will be sold to adult Qataris through Widam Food Company at a number of locations, such as the Abu Hamour area (central market) and other Widam slaughterhouses in Al Shamal, Al Khor and the Umm Salal market.
