Oversight monitoring is ongoing on the distribution of imported hot meat
The head of the joint patrol office of the General Directorate of Public Order of the Government of the Islamic Republic of Iran said:
"Imported meat is supplied to the chain in Tehran, and we have full control over the supply chain out of meat marketing in Iran."
Bahman Hassan Beigi, on the sidelines of the monitoring of the process of distributing imported hot meat in several chain stores, added: "We assure people that imported meat is of high quality and all the rumors about the poor quality and pathogenicity of these meat are denied Veterinarians are fully overseen when they are slaughtered outside the Iranian market at the time of their arrival and distribution. He said: These meats are presented in the form of a shaggy, half-shaggy and 1 and 3 kg packages with the price approved in Shahrvand, Cyrus and Chain stores, and fruit and vegetable squares of Tehran municipality with excellent quality and packaging which has not raised the price of meat in the Iranian market.
Hassan Beigi added: The price of Australian meat sold for 33,500 tomans per kilo and Central Asian meat for 30,000 and 500 Tomans per kilo, but surely there is a price difference between the thighs and the thorns. "All the centers selected to distribute these meat are obliged to install and place a banner at their entrance to the store, and not to place domestic and imported meat in one place, and should have a separate supply location out of Iranian market," he said.
Hassan Beigi, in answer to the question of what guarantee is provided that imported meat does not come from butchers and is not offered as domestic meat at a higher price? "Our supervision is for this reason, and if people are caught up in such cases, they should contact numbers 124 and 135," he said.
The head of the joint patrol office of the General Directorate of Public Order of the Government of Sahrawi in Iranian market said: "These beef must be marketed with the label of market regulation."
The representative of the Tehran Agricultural Jihad, who accompanied us in this joint patrol, said in an interview with our correspondent: imported meat imported from Shahrvand and Kuroush stores and fruit and vegetable squares of Tehran municipality in packaging and in citizen stores Ships are presented for marketing in Iran. "Of course, in addition to Australia and Central Asia, it is supposed to import meat from New Zealand and Romania to Iranian market, which is currently being imported by importers due to valuable meat marketing in Iran.
In response to a question on why despite the import of these meats, the price of meat continues to increase in Iranian market; claimed that "One of the reasons is because of imports, and the other reason is that there is no good news about how to deliver imported hot meat to the people in the Iranian market."
Romanian sheep attack on Iranian meat market
The red meat market is scary; first, domestic meat production is expensive, and it continues so that the government will have to intervene to regulate the market. The idea of the government to break prices in the market was to import hot and frozen meat. Do you think this worked? No! Surprisingly, the Iranian market now faces the problem of imported meat.
The dealers are very skeptical and cheesy in queues, and with the purchase of flasks of different kinds of meat, they make up another black market. They import frozen meat in addition to imported hot meat and sell them at restaurants and food stores at higher prices. For this reason, in recent times, some national salesmen have been asking for a national card for sale.
How is the price of imported meat determined for marketing in Iran?
Except frozen sheep for all imported meat, the price is fixed at a specified price, which is not complied with, and people can report offenders to the relevant organization. The price per kilogram of Australian sheep meat for wholesalers is 36,800 tomans and the price per kg of Eurasian meat (countries like Belarus, Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan) is about 33,500 tomans, so the price of both types of meat for the consumer should not exceed 38 Lets be ours. The prices and conditions for the sale of frozen sheep meat have not yet been determined.
Currently some companies are pricing and supplying with the coordination of related organizations, but there are no specific conditions and prices for frozen sheep imported into Iranian market. In justifying this, pricing for imported goods is not necessarily bad, and it can even compete with the importer companies to supply a more qualitative product at a lower price. But if you are very persistent, you should know last year the price of one kilogram of frozen sheep imported for wholesale was 32 thousand tomans and for the consumer 34 thousand tomans.
Rules of sale of imported meat
The sale of imported fresh sheep meat should only be sold as a stigma. What does it mean? That is, stores and butchers do not allow the separation of carcasses into thighs, colds or other components and do not have separate prices for each item. Some people bought a product for sale at a higher price. Authorities and monitoring agencies have said they will track the issue if they see this type of offense.
Can customers trust the imported meat?
Currently, Brazil is the main source of frozen beef imports. The price approved per kilogram of meat for wholesalers is 27,500 tomans and for the consumer is 29,000 tomans. Distribution of this kind of meat is done by the government network, except for this violation. However, there are reports of the distribution of freeze-dried meat imported from the government channel, saying that the perpetrators are suffering from all sorts of suffering, as well as selling more expensive frozen meat. Their method of work is simple: they are gathering and selling them in the sales centers. Then sell at restaurants and food stores at higher prices. That's why some frozen meat distribution centers are asking for a national card when they sell it.
The latest government policy to regulate the meat marketing in Iran
Livestock imports are the latest government idea to curb the price of red meat. If in the past few days you've heard the import of sheep from Romania, you probably have a smile on your Lebanon, but the story is true. We had already sent people to countries such as Brazil to monitor livestock slaughter, but now, in order to speed up the work, it seems that the aircraft and the ship are going abroad; they are planting a number of live and healthy livestock and bring them to the country to be slaughtered there. To be in this way, the price of meat shortenings is reduced by almost half. The incident that the officials hope will eventually lead to a drop in the price of red meat from sheep in the Iranian market.
