Crazy prices for fruits and vegetables

There can be many reasons behind the high prices of vegetables and fruits in the markets and justified, but the main reason remains the greed and greed of traders, “and always the right to the dollar” and here we can notice this through the price discrepancy between one store and another and between wholesale and retail prices.

“What do you want to eat for the poor in this country?” If we dispense with meat because of its high prices, the prices of vegetables and fruits rise and do not fall again. The citizen is surprised by this high price, as agricultural products have become a luxury for most Lebanese families, and they are now buying them with the grain.

– Why this crazy and continuous rise in the prices of fruits and vegetables?

– Why is there a difference in prices between one store and another, and between wholesale and retail prices?

– How long will this greed and greed remain with the merchants, and where is the oversight to control things?

With the decline in the purchasing power of the individual, the inflation of prices, and the inability to provide sufficient food, the country is supposed to benefit from its natural resources to secure sufficient food for all groups, and it is necessary to stand in the face of the arrogance of wholesalers and farmers and to conduct effective and serious control to control prices within their reasonable limits.
