Importers Agree to Price Freeze on Livestock During Ramadan

Sheep for Feast of Eid al Fitr

A spokesman for Al Batina Livestock, a leading importer of Australian livestock into Oman, announced that his company will adhere to the request of the government to refrain from any price hikes during the holy month of Ramadan.

The Sultanate is working hard to keep food prices during Ramadan under control, and a key element in stable prices is a price freeze on the cost of meat. Al Batna has agreed to maintain their prices at the present level until at least after the Eid al Fitr holiday.

"We agreed to cap our prices at last year's retail selling price of RO 90 per head of Australian sheep as a gesture of support for the government's efforts to rein in food prices during Ramadan," the representative said.
