Bread prices in Jordan to remain stable – Minister
Jordan’s Minister of Industry, Trade and Supply Yousef Shamali announced that bread prices would not be increased even if the price of a ton of wheat reached a thousand dollars. Shamali said in an interview with Jordan TV’s 60 Minutes that Jordan bought wheat last week for nearly $500 per ton, despite estimates in the budget for wheat prices ranging from $230 to $260 per ton.
The price of poultry was a subject of public interest during the holy month of Ramadan, as it is a necessary ingredient in the diet of the faithful. However, after the holy month of Ramadan, the price had returned to a normal level, which was the lowest among neighboring countries.
