Meat traders have decided to sell beef at Tk 650 per kg across the country, including the capital, starting today.
The decision was taken at a meeting between the Bangladesh Dairy Farmers Association (BDFA) and Bangladesh Meat Traders Association (BMTA) on Wednesday.
BMTA General Secretary Robiul Islam, BDFA President Imran Hossain, and others were present at the meeting.
Since the beginning of this year, the price of beef had increased to Tk 800. As a result, meat sales dropped significantly causing the sellers to suffer losses. Many traders recently started selling beef at Tk 600-650 to increase sales.
The Directorate of National Consumers’ Rights Protection held a meeting with meat traders on Sunday and asked them to fix the beef price.
