Includes a plethora of nationally-produced ingredients such as spices, flour, eggs, starch, oils, acids, nuts, grains and seeds, vegetables, fruit and vegetable essences, sugar, gelatine, and natural food coloring.
Includes basic industrial materials such as plastics, metals, and polymers, in addition to plates, sheets, rolls, tapes, strips, and other objects used in the processes of synthesizing, packaging, and transporting goods.
Upon releasing the list, the Economy Ministry specified the documents required for submitting requests, and a set of conditions regarding the sale of imported consumer goods in wholesale and retail to consumers in the Lebanese market.
The Ministry noted that the list may be updated by Minister Raoul Nehme in the future, where needed.
Notably, Nehme previously said that the subsidized items will be designated specific aisles in supermarkets in order to be located easily by shoppers, who should start to sense the new prices within two weeks.
The official announcement of the consumer basket, which includes the full list of subsidized items, can be found on the Economy Ministry’s website.
