(MENAFN - Muscat Daily) The holy month of Ramadan begins today, but the Muscat Municipality has been working overtime for around a month to ensure that the Mawaleh Central Fruits and Vegetables Market has enough supply to meet the high demand during this period. Important committees have met to decide timings, discuss inspections and clearances and better ways to manage the high number of containers carrying different goods. 

The central market received 788 containers carrying 15,640 tonnes of fruits and vegetables between June 1 and June 25.

''The administration of the Mawaleh central market began preparations for the holy month early by holding coordination meetings with importing companies to ensure availability of fruits and vegetables in ample quantities to cope with increased buying expected during the period. The companies affirmed their readiness by increasing supply,'' said a Muscat Municipality official.

The official said that 11,220 tonnes of fruits and vegetables arrived by road while 4,420 tonnes arrived through ports.

Also, a coordination meeting with governmental bodies represented by the Director of Customs and the Agricultural Quarantine Office at the market was held in the presence of representatives of clearance companies to discuss matters associated with inspection and clearance of arriving consignments.

''The meeting came up with proposals to make the inspection process smoother so that goods reach consumers in the shortest possible time. It was also decided to prevent unwarranted price rise by traders,'' the official said.

To tackle the congestion from increased traffic during Ramadan, the market administration is coordinating with a team from the Al Khoudh police station to intensify patrols and facilitate easy entry and exit. A special area has been created for loading and unloading of trucks.

Shifts have been formed for municipality teams, inspections have been intensified and the number of cleaners have been increased. The Central Slaughterhouse in Bausher too has finished preparing for more customers with advanced equipment and an air conditioned waiting room with seats.

Slaughtering charges are RO1 per sheep, RO2 for a cow and RO4 for camels.
