Here’s some more info regarding buying Pork in Qatar Distribution Company (QDC) from an inside source.

1.) Access to QDC is still restricted to liquor permit holders.

2.) We need the liquor permit to create an invoice.

3.) No other permit is necessary.

4.) The value of pork purchases is NOT deducted from your permit value.

5.) There is no limit on how much you can purchase.

6.) The current range is restricted to frozen smoked & unsmoked back & streaky bacon and 3 types of sausage (plain, Lincolnshire & Cumberland).

7.) All packs (400gms for bacon & 454gms for sausages) are QR28 per pack.

8.) Frozen items like chops, joints and belly pork will be here in about 1 month.

9.) A chilled Italian range of Salami, Parma Ham etc is coming by air freight and should be here within 7-10 days.

10.) We hope to get some chilled ham & gammon joints by air in time for Christmas, but we are still negotiating prices on this.

Pork loin, joints, ribs and ground pork are now available. Different brands of sausage, small salami, pkgs of prosciutto and other sliced meats. Ham/gammon steaks (expensive), whole pieces of gammon and ham joints etc.

The sliced smoky bacon available now is pretty good.

Did the cuts ever arrive, or is it still just bacon and sausages?

(I'm not in the country yet so can't go and check myself.)
