The fish sellers were reminded about the importance of adhering to the price lists.


To safeguard fair pricing of essential foods during the holy month of Ramadan, the officials from the Commercial Compliance and Consumer Protection (CCCP) sector in Dubai Economy, has visited the Deira Fish Market.

The fish sellers were reminded about the importance of adhering to the price lists and meeting customer needs across a series of meetings held during the visit.

Ahmad Al Awadi, director of commercial control in CCCP, said that the market visits were aimed to strengthen communication and partnership with the merchants to enhance consumer confidence.

"During such visits, we make sure that the merchants comply with the requirements of Dubai Economy. Those who sell fish or frozen meat should display the item description and prices in Arabic, in addition to any foreign language. It will avoid price manipulation, particularly during Ramadan when such products are in high demand," Al Awadi said.

"We met with a number of traders in the fish market, upholding the spirit of partnership we maintain with the private sector. The CCCP sector is keen to ensure that best practices prevail across Dubai while doing businesses. We will continue to visit markets to encourage transparency and impartiality in merchant-consumer relations and eliminate any chance of unhealthy practices," Al Awadi added.

The trader response to such campaigns have been largely positive and most meat merchants have confirmed they would ensure adequate supply during Ramadan while also informing consumers about the source of such products, Al Awadi noted.

"Our focus is not on imposing restrictions on traders, but discussing the different aspects of the trade and evolving solutions to problems," Al Awadhi said, urging the public to report any price increase or malpractice they notice by calling Ahlan Dubai on 600 54 5555 or tweeting on @Dubai_consumer.
