Zawya: Food Security Index sees improvement in Oman
04 June 2024

In 2022, Oman saw improvements in its food security index, particularly in the "food availability," "sustainability," and "adaptation" indicators, with increases of 7 and 8.4 points respectively. The Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries, and Water Resources is dedicated to enhancing the regulation of food safety and quality, striving to ensure adherence to standard specifications. Collaborating with relevant authorities, including those overseeing Oman's Food Safety Law and the Centre for Food Safety and Quality, the Ministry develops and updates regulations and technical specifications for food products. Between 2022 and 2023, the Ministry introduced 7 new regulations and reviewed 120 draft technical regulations and national and Gulf specifications. Vigilant monitoring of local and international developments in food safety and quality, coupled with continuous inspection of food products and market exchanges, underscores the Ministry's commitment to maintaining high standards in Oman's food industry.
