The General Company for Food Stuff Trading in the Ministry of Commerce revealed, on Wednesday, the reasons for distributing the food basket items in the form of meals, while indicating that the food basket storage is secured for the first months of next year.
The assistant general manager of the company, Talib Abbas Al-Hamdani, told the official news agency, "The food basket contract is one of the important contracts that have achieved a balance in food prices in the market so far," noting that "the eighth basket has been equipped by 90%, in Baghdad and the provinces." And we are working on preparing the stores for the ninth and tenth baskets with all the materials.”
Al-Hamdani added, "The food basket includes oil, lentils, rice, chickpeas, beans and tomato paste," noting that "the processing of the food basket is financed from the allocations of the Food Security Law until the end of the current year, with emergency stocks for the first months of the next year."
Al-Hamdani added, "The company's administrative and financial department is still continuing correspondences to coordinate with the Ministry of Finance to finance the amounts for the food basket in preparation for the next year."
He stressed, "The food basket is integrated, especially this month, as it was distributed by preparing the checks in all ports, whether in the ports or border crossings, to prepare the food items related to the basket, and it reached the stores in order to distribute the food basket items in one meal without dividing it."
He pointed out, "The division of the distribution of food basket items in the form of meals is out of our control, as some materials are delayed in examination," noting that "the company is making double and continuous efforts, in order to examine the materials and deliver them in a timely manner and in full quantity."
Al-Hamdani stated, "About 30% of the ninth quota has been prepared and is located in the warehouses, which the company seeks to absorb all the materials."
He continued by saying, "The company has reviewed all the technical procedures for the stores and fully prepared them to accommodate the largest possible number of quotas in order to be distributed monthly on an ongoing basis and be delivered to the citizen." Ended 29/R77
