Baked Potato Chips Witness an Upsurge in Demand

The manufacturers of baked chips compete with each other while discovering innovative and new tastes, flavors, and packaging styles.

Supermarket/Hypermarket is the Most Preferred Distribution Channel

In Qatar, potato chips are primarily sold through supermarkets/hypermarkets. As these outlets are abundant in most of the areas, people prefer to buy daily groceries, including potato chips, from these channels.

Al-Meera, Carrefour, Lulu, and Safari are some of the popular supermarkets/hypermarkets in Qatar that offer potato chips.
