AMMAN — The Ministry of Agriculture Spokesperson, Dr Nimmer Haddadin, stated that all kinds of produce, fruits and vegetables, will be available for local consumption during the holy month of Ramadan, including seasonal crops.

As for livestock, the Ministry reassures that red and white meets are available in excess for the holy month, as over 300 thousand Roman sheep and 30 thousand Australian and domestic sheep, as well as large quantities of veal and calves, including refrigerated fresh meats, and over 23 thousand tonnes of domestic poultry, are available for local consumption, noting the quantities in stock meet the official health specifications and standards for Jordan.

The Ministry warns of unnecessary price increase caused by sudden, uncalled-for, irrational shoots in demand on produce and meats, as all foodstuff is sufficiently available.
