Ramadan date shopping season

Ramadan date shopping season

Why is the best season to buy Ramadan dates now? 

Ramadan is that time of the year when all 1.8 billion Muslims can enter the realms of spirituality and introspection, sympathize with the poor, develop patience, and get rid of bad habits. While it is all that and more, Ramadan is also the best time for dates.

Health benefits of dates

Dates are known to be a source of minerals, potassium, magnesium, vitamins, iron, and fiber. They ooze with natural glucose, which helps keep the body energized and hydrated during long hours of fasting. As a result, dates are widely used in Ramadan.


Breaking the fast with dates stimulates blood sugar levels to return to normal, which also make dates a good pre-workout snack.


Doctors at Weill Cornell Medical College in Qatar (WCMQ) conducted research on what makes dates healthy other than the fact that they contain vitamins.


The researchers sought to analyze the blood of research participants who ate date varieties after fasting for twelve hours for presence of beneficial phytochemicals, a chemical compound found in plants.


They added that the large amounts of phytochemicals in dates reduce risk for heart diseases. Phytochemicals contain antioxidant , anti-inflammatory properties, anti-cancer properties, and neuroprotective properties, yet this is not widely known.


Dates are not only an excellent fast breaker, they are also an ideal nutrient to add to the suhur meal before fasting.


For these reasons, and the Muslim population of 1.8 billion, the best time to buy dates is another month.

How Ramadan Affects Retail Sales?

We know that Ramadan represents a significant cultural shift in consumer behaviour. In some parts of the world, these changes can affect an entire markets’ online shopping habits. Last year, weekly retail sales in the Middle East rose by 29% with Turkey increasing by 5%. Southeast Asia saw an average sales uplift of 52%, with Indonesia soaring at 80%.


In 2017, brands in the Middle East saw significantly higher numbers of website visitors by 21%, compared to an average of the three-month period before.


This is likely due to the traditional gifting during Eid al-Fitr, with 61% of respondents in KSA, 58% in UAE, and 24% in Turkey planning to buy gifts for others during Ramadan.
