Food prices stabilise

The prices of fruit and vegetables sold in local markets have stabilised following the recent increase, a Bahrain Chamber member has said.

Shipments of food products have been imported from different sources to meet soaring demand, food resources committee chairman Khalid Al Ameen said yesterday. “The markets are stable and meeting the needs of consumers, with prices going back to normal.”

He expected prices to drop further in the coming period, blaming the recent spike on global factors.

Global factors, including the Ukraine war and fluctuating winter conditions have taken their toll on the world food market, he said.

Mr Al Ameen thanked His Royal Highness Prince Salman bin Hamad Al Khalifa, Crown Prince and Prime Minister, for his keenness to monitor prices and ensure products are provided in the local market.
