Actress Sherihan calls for boycotting meat

Actress Sherihan announced her solidarity with a social media campaign on Sunday to boycott local and imported meat due to price hikes.
Sherihan called on affluent citizens through her Twitter account to participate in the campaign.
In an effort to demonstrate against the recent hike in meat prices, some locals in Damietta have launched a Facebook campaign to boycott both local and imported meat in an attempt to decrease prices ahead of Eid al-Adha.
One kilo of veal has gone up to LE80, while imported veal sells for LE90 per kilo. The cost for 1 kilo of imported buffalo meat has reached LE50, while local buffalo meat ranges between LE65 and LE75.
Meat markets have witnessed a significant increase in local meat prices which traders attribute to the fact that there is a general meat shortage.
