UAE guarantees long term access to nutritious food at affordable prices


The UAE has a resilient food system infrastructure that's ready to deal with rapidly changing circumstances.

That's according to Mariam Almheiri, Minister of State for Food and Water Security, who pointed at the aptly established framework that contributed to the country’s success in food security, which comfortably saw the UAE through the global pandemic. 

A large consortium of local and national ministries were present at the virtual meeting.

The session reaffirmed the country’s food security commitment to its residents, providing access to adequate amounts of nutritious food at affordable prices, with a particular emphasis on food security in light of the pandemic.
