THE ECONOMIC SIZE OF THE SACRIFICE FEAST IS VERY HIGH…

In his written statement, Ahmet Hacıince, Chairman of the Board of Directors of the National Red Meat Council (UKON), pointed out that the economy created by the upcoming Eid al-Adha is large when shepherds, breeders, butchers, transporters, peddlers in animal markets and slaughterhouses are taken into consideration.

Stating that they conducted field research before the feast, Hacıince used the following statements:

“It has been determined that the breeding and selling sectors do not have any problems in the supply of sacrificial animals and keep a sufficient number of sacrificial animals ready for sale. In addition, it was seen that the foundations and associations that provide sacrifice slaughtering services by proxy have completed the supply of sacrificial animals and announced the share prices. To put it briefly, it has been concluded that there is no problem in the supply of sacrificial animals for this year when the number of slaughtering in previous years is taken into consideration.”

LENGTH OF THE HOLIDAY AFFECTS DEMAND…

Hacıince reminded that sacrifice shipments to all major cities other than Istanbul have started and noted that the shipments to Istanbul will start 15 days before the feast.

Underlining that sacrifice prices will be formed according to the supply and demand balance, Hacıince said, “Prices vary between 150-300 liras per kilogram. In the formation of demand for sacrificial animals, the purchasing power of our citizens and the gap between the proxy sacrifice price and the sacrifice prices in the market will be effective. The length of the holiday is another factor affecting the demand formation.”

“The waste of offal and leather is also experienced during the Feast of Sacrifice, so I would like to warn the slaughterers to be careful in this regard,” Hacıince added…
