Meat prices rip-off

In the TRNC some one thousand cattle and ten thousand sheep and goats are slaughtered every year. However there are significant differences in meat prices between North and South Cyprus.

Lamb costs TL24 per kilo in the North compared to TL20 in the South. Beef costs TL30 per kilo in the North compared to TL22 in the South.

This is being blamed on the middle men, who buy the meat for around TL7 per kilo and then charge customers around TL25 per kilo.
