There is a saying: “We have two homes, Earth and our body. Let’s take care of them.” That’s the spirit when choosing locally grown food.

According to the World Bank, Qatar’s food imports have fallen during the COVID-19 period. However, fear not. Qatar has ramped up its own food production in state-of-the-art agricultural facilities, delivering high quality produce, dairy and meat products to the local market through an efficient supply chain.

Why is purchasing and eating locally grown food a sustainable option?

1. It supports the local economy.

2. Food travels less distance from field to table, so it’s fresher.

3. It requires less fuel than international food imports.

4. You can buy it at farmer’s markets during the cooler season from November to April.
