Trade: A proposal to add chicken and eggs to a basket Ramadan

Baghdad – Nas  

The General Company for Food Trade at the Ministry of Commerce revealed on Tuesday a proposal to add chicken and eggs to the basket of the month of Ramadan, and while indicating measures to limit the rise in prices with the approach of the holy month, it set the date for the opening of marketing complexes.      

The company’s director, Lama Hashem Al-Moussawi, said in an interview with the official agency “NAS”, (February 14, 2023), that “the ministry seeks to add some materials in the special food basket in the blessed month of Ramadan, but it is still under study, and in the coming days the additions will be determined,” stressing that “the additions will include all citizens who have the ration card, as well as the distribution of the food basket for social protection.”  

“One of the proposals to add materials during the holy month of Ramadan is to add chicken, eggs or both,” al-Moussawi said.  

Measures to control prices  

“The ministry launched a campaign some time ago to sell food at competitive prices in all provinces, but the process will become more organized in the holy month of Ramadan, by opening marketing complexes at the company’s sites that contain foodstuffs,” she said.  


Al-Moussawi explained that “the company will receive a large amount of table eggs during the next week, as well as quantities of flour, and the processing process is ongoing, in addition to that the company will receive meat and fish,” stressing that “the company will start selling them through marketing complexes during the next two weeks.”  

Marketing complexes  

She pointed out that “the company will open marketing complexes similar to the system of associations, but special complexes for the Ministry of Commerce to sell foodstuffs at competitive prices, and this is one of the ministry’s plans.”  


She explained that “the system of converting the ration card to electronic will reduce the procedures and red tape in the sorting and blocking processes,” noting that “the ration card transaction will be through a simple mobile application that every citizen can easily access.”  

Al-Moussawi indicated that “this system works on the accuracy of data and the speed of procedures that occur in sorting and blocking processes while reducing time,” noting that “this system will correct all errors, reduce cases of repetition and erase the names of the deceased.”  

“The project started in three provinces, and will include all provinces with this system for a period ranging from 7 to 8 months,” she said.  


She noted that “the number of beneficiaries of the ration card as individuals reached 41 million and 260 thousand people, but after completing the electronic card, the number of those covered will decrease, and the undeserving categories will be determined, namely: high-income people, the deceased, travelers and immigrants.”
