Local production exceeds consumption

Qatar produces more vegetables than it needs

According to the Executive Director of Business Relations at Hassad Food, Mubarak al-Sahouti, Qatar's production of some vegetables exceeds consumption rates. Al-Sahouti said that the volume of vegetables received from local farmers increased by 20% in the current season compared to the previous season.

He added that the local market needs about 2,000 tons of cucumbers and about 5,000-6,000 tons of tomatoes per month. Al-Sahouti pointed to Hassad's actual contribution to achieving food security, noting that the company established Mahaseel for Marketing and Agricultural Services in 2018, in coordination with the Ministry of Municipality, with the aim of supporting local farmers who face challenges in marketing their products.

He noted the high demand for local vegetables, especially during the winter season, during which shops completely depend on local products.
