Jordan’s Queen Rania al Abdullah met with local farmers and food producers on Monday in Jabal Al-Weibdeh’s Dibeen Farmers Market to see how they have benefited from the Dibeen online market.
Vendors are able to sell their products at Dibeen Farmers’ online store Dibeen.com, which was launched last year to help Jordanian farmers and food producers continue to sell and deliver their products to consumers during the global health crisis.
The Queen spoke to the Dibeen team about the online market and commended the site’s founder, Zeid Qudsi, for providing Jordanian farmers and producers with a way to continue their livelihoods in the midst of the pandemic. She also spoke of how the past year has been difficult for everyone globally and how many businesses were forced to go online to remain open and help consumers purchase necessary products.
Queen Rania also received a tour of the market and praised young people for collaborating with Dibeen to help local farmers by helping to package products and promote them to a larger audience. Additionally, she spoke to the vendors at the market to learn more about how they have received help from Dibeen and how technology helped them keep their businesses afloat.
Dibeen.com also gives support by assisting in packaging, distribution and promotion.
After visiting the market, Queen Rania said on social media that she “enjoyed meeting with some of the farmers and vendors who sell their products on Dibeen.com.”
