The total sales of Qatari local vegetables from the Qatari distinctive producer and farms programmes during August reached 183 tons at major commercial complexes and other markets in the country.

Such programmes aim to improve the local marketing of Qatari vegetables, increase demand and minimise production losses, as well as increase Qatari farm income, thus, encouraging increased investment in agriculture and the availability of local vegetable varieties in consumer complexes throughout the year.

The local products marketing programmes are supervised by the Ministry of Municipality and Environment in cooperation with the Ministry of Commerce and Industry. This was made in order to provide Qatari farmers with the opportunity to sell high-quality Qatari vegetables at affordable prices to the consumer without an intermediary, and without paying any commissions.

Through these marketing programmes, local vegetable products have proved to be competitive with the imported product in the Qatari market.
