Rampant waste of raw hides and skins after Eid-ul-Azha

Despite fixing a higher price for the animal skins and allowing the export of wet-blue for the first time in 30 years, the Bangladesh government was unable to prevent widespread waste of raw hides and skins. However, the waste was reportedly less than in the previous two Eid-ul-Azha festivals.

An estimated 30,000 pieces of raw hides remain unsold in Bangladesh following the Eid al-Adha Islamic festival, which took place August 10-14 this year and traditionally represents 80% of all hides collected by tanners across the country annually.
