Sudanese minister offers to export cheaper meat to Turkey
KHARTOUM, Sudan - Anadolu Agency
The Turkish government has launched a series of plans to ease the rising red meat prices, including the sale of red meat by a state organization to two large supermarket chains for a much lower price than the market average in an effort to push down the prices.
“If we can agree on terms [with Turkish officials], we can produce meat of high quality for Turkey. It costs $4 per kilogram at most,” Sudanese Agriculture Minister Abdullatif Ahmed Mohamed Ijaimi told Anadolu Agency early on Dec. 25.
Erdoğan also signed a revised free trade deal during his visit to Serbia in October, which stipulated duty free 5,000 tons of meat exports from local producers in the Sandzak region, the majority-Muslim southern part of the country.
