DUBAI – The UAE will be reducing the prices of 30,000 food items during Ramadan, according to the Ministry of Economy.
A total of 900 outlets, including Carrefour, will be among retailers that will reduce the prices on certain items during the holy month.
Staples such as rice, flour, sugar, meat, fish and juices will be available at 25 percent to 75 percent discount.
According to the Ministry of Economy, 420 inspections will be carried out to ensure that grocery stores and supermarkets do not have unfair price increases.

“The discussions focused on preparations for Ramadan, ensuring stability of prices and preventing any unjustified price hikes,” Al Sboosi said. ICA/Expat Media
