Rising Prices of Sacrificial Animals Raises Concern Among Moroccans as Eid Al-Adha Approaches, Minister of Agriculture Held Accountable!

Parliamentary member Fadwa Mohsen Al-Hayani, a member of the Haraki team in the House of Representatives, called on the Moroccan government to take urgent measures to ensure the purchase of sacrificial animals at reasonable prices in the upcoming Eid Al-Adha, taking into account the purchasing power of citizens.

Al-Hayani expressed her concern about the continued skyrocketing prices of red meat, especially beef, which has reached 120 dirhams per kilogram in some areas, further burdening the poor and middle class.

She pointed out that this price hike is causing significant discontent among Moroccan families and exacerbating their fears of rising sacrificial animal prices as Eid Al-Adha approaches, as happened last year, despite government support for sheep importers.

Al-Hayani emphasized that “this social measure has not yielded positive results on the purchasing power of citizens.”

She urged the government to take responsibility and take tangible steps to ensure the availability of red meat at reasonable prices for all citizens, especially with the approaching blessed Eid Al-Adha, which is considered an important religious and social occasion for Moroccans.

The measures advocated by Al-Hayani include:

  • Strict monitoring of red meat prices in markets.
  • Supporting livestock breeders to reduce production costs.
  • Providing direct sales outlets to citizens at reduced prices.
  • Reviewing the mechanism for importing red meat.
