New rules on labelling products from MOCI

New rules on labelling products from MOCI

Local manufacturers and producers of national products have been given mandatory rules by the Ministry of Commerce and Industry (MoCI) to place the national product label on locally-manufactured goods. This includes all agricultural products and semi-manufactured goods that are sold in Qatar as well.

This new mandate aims to help promote national products as well as support them across the local market. Through this new rule, producers can reach customers more easily and can help offer invaluable access to new markets. This is especially beneficial for producers and business traders who are seeking to introduce new products into the market. In line with this, local products can then be bolstered and elevated to whole new heights.

The logo must be placed on the front cover of the packaging of the national product, or may be placed on a prominent spot that is clearly visible to the consumers. This can also be used as an added feature on various advertising materials as well as on shipping and distribution vehicles to further spread awareness about the seal for marketing purposes. However, products that are intended for export may not use the logo; instead, the phrase “Made in Qatar” may be used.

More info can be found at the department for the Promotion of National Product Competitiveness at the Ministry of Commerce and Industry.
