Compared to the prices at which they are being sold in Al Ain markets, they are tagged at prices which are almost 50 per cent cheaper.

This was announced on Tuesday by Wala'a Adil Rashid, Deputy Director Manager of Al Ain Cooperative Society.

Wala'a said these products carry the trade mark of Al Ain Cooperative Society. "The products include tissue papers, mineral water, frozen vegetables, powder soap, antiseptics etc.," he said.

The Society will soon offer oil and powdered milk at 50 per cent cheaper prices, he added.

"The Society will also offer rice and chicken that are 10 per cent cheaper," Wala'a said.

Wala'a said the decision, taken in consultation with the Ministry of Economy (MoE), was aimed at providing relief to Al Ain residents, especially during the holy month of Ramadan.

He said some supermarkets and shopping centres in Al Ain had hiked prices of essential foodstuffs and Ramadan commodities, despite the warning of the MoE.
