The local market’s frozen okra is safe, fit for consumption, and complies with all applicable technical norms and specifications, according to the Ministry of Public Health (MOPH).

GCC had informed MOPH that frozen okra under the “Zero” brand (Sanabel), with origins in Egypt, may have bug infestations. The ministry reaffirmed that Qatar does not import this kind.

In order to take additional precautions, the ministry’s inspectors took frozen okra samples from the same country of origin and checked them at the central food laboratories, where it was discovered that they were devoid of any insect diseases.

Additionally, MOPH published a circular recommending preventive sample for okra shipments coming from the same nation of origin.
