Deals signed to raise Qatar’s strategic stock of food items

A slew of contracts to increase Qatar’s strategic stock of food were signed on Thursday. Undersecretary for Consumer Affairs and Head of the Strategic Storage Working Group for Food Security at the Ministry of Commerce and Industry Sheikh Jassim bin Jabr bin Hassan al Thani signed the contracts with 14 major companies specialising in the food sector. Minister of Commerce and Industry HE Ali bin Ahmed al Kuwari and Minister of Municipality and Environment HE Abdullah bin Abdulaziz bin Turki al Subaie were present during the deal signing ceremony. The initiative falls in line with the state’s food security strategy to bolster the strategic stock system for food products, consumer goods and food supplies, in order to cement Qatar’s leading regional position in terms of sufficiency in strategic stocks, its ability to achieve food security and meet the needs of its citizens and residents. page 8
