Subsidised sheep sale to begin tomorrow

July 12, 2021

The sale of subsidised sheep to citizens will begin on Tuesday (July 13) and will continue until July 23.
The sale is based on the annual initiative launched by the Ministry of Commerce and Industry, within the framework of the joint national initiative to encourage local production, subsidise sheep meat prices and create a balance in supply and demand that contributes to reducing price in the markets.
In a statement, the ministry said it has agreed with the Widam Food Company to provide approximately 12,500 heads of Arab sheep to be sold at subsidised and discounted prices for citizens, at QR1,000 for the local sheep (35 kg and more) and QR950 for Syrian sheep (45 kg or more).
The sale of sheep will take place at the Widam slaughterhouses in Al Wakrah, Al Shamal, Al Khor, Al Mazroua and Al Sheehaniya, for Qatari citizens. Only one head of sheep is allowed in order to reach the target group.
The ministry stressed that it will intensify its inspection campaigns from the first day of sale, to ensure compliance with the subsidized prices and the implementation of safety procedures.
The ministry urged all customers to report complaints and suggestions through: Call Centre: 16001, or its e-mail Twitter: MOCIQATAR, Instagram: MOCIQATAR.
