CAIRO - 15 May 2017: Forty five tons of food commodities are available on discount on Monday at the Ministry of Agriculture’s outlets in preparation for the holy month of Ramadan, according to a statement by the Ministry of Agriculture.

The food commodities on sale include legumes, vegetables, meat, poultry and dairy products in an attempt to alleviate the financial burden due to the surge in prices, stated Osama Rasmi, the marketing general manager of the Production sector at the Ministry of Agriculture.

The increase in prices, which reached up to a 100 percent, resulted from the high inflation rate which hit the Egyptian market since the flotation of the Egyptian pound last November.
