Boycott meat

AMMAN –– The Consumer Protection Society (CPS) on Saturday said its campaign to boycott local and imported red meat achieved its goals by reducing meat prices across the Kingdom.

CPS President Mohammad Obeidat told The Jordan Times that the campaign, which was launched a week before Ramadan and continued throughout the entire month, lowered prices to an average of JD8 per kilo of local meat and JD5 per kilo of imported meat.

“If it wasn’t for the campaign, local meat prices would have reached JD12 or JD13 per kilo,” he claimed, adding that the campaign also played a role in driving down the prices of other foodstuff. (Thanks Marcy)
