MoE inspects Fujairah market prices

The Ministry of Economy on Monday inspected the central vegetable, fruit and meat market in Fujairah as part of its month-long visits to monitor markets during Ramadan.

Dr. Hashim Al Nuaimi, Director of the Ministry’s Consumer Protection Department, conducted the inspection along with representatives from Fujairah Municipality and the Ministry’s office in Fujairah along with various local media members.

Dr. Al Nuaimi emphasized the importance of using the new labels approved by the Ministry of Economy, which show the price, type, and source of items along with other information for buyers to consider before making purchases.

As of yesterday, the Ministry conducted around 170 unannounced and declared inspections of the country’s various markets and will make a total of 400 visits until the end of Ramadan, he added.

Dr. Al Nuaimi confirmed that vegetables and fruit prices at the market are stable. He added that the prices of some goods have been reduced due to increased imports and rising availability at the Dubai market which serves as the main supply center for markets in Fujairah.
