Rising sacrificial animal prices spark debate over Green Morocco’s viability

The skyrocketing prices of sacrificial animals on the occasion of Eid al-Adha have raised questions and criticisms about the usefulness of the “Green Morocco”, the Kingdom’s large-scale agricultural project aimed at achieving agricultural self-sufficiency and improving productivity. A picture was circulated on social media expressing this dissatisfaction, noting that the current prices reveal the falsity of the project’s promises.

Prices of agricultural products

Olive oil: The price has reached 90 dirhams.

Meat: The price per kilogramme has reached 100 dirhams.

Import of agricultural products

Lamb: Imported from Spain and Romania.

Wheat: Imported from Russia and Ukraine.

Lentils and chickpeas: Imported from Canada.

Cows: Imported from Belgium and the Netherlands.

These high prices have prompted many citizens to express their anger and resentment, considering that this situation reflects the failure of national agricultural policies to achieve their main goals. As prices continue to rise, the question remains as to what measures the government will take to address this issue and ensure that agricultural products are available at affordable prices for citizens.
