Koalit stated in a statement to the Khaberni website on Saturday, that Uruguayan meat is frozen and does not affect local meat, especially with the opening of the door for the export of municipal meat. He added that the price per kilogram of Uruguayan meat is estimated at JD4 or less, while the price of local meat reaches JD9 or less.

Koalit continued that there is a segment of citizens who cannot afford to buy local meat, so they find several alternatives in the market, including Uruguayan meat.

The Ministry of Agriculture had issued permits for several traders to import meat from Uruguay and South America into the Jordanian markets.
