Traders reluctant to buy rawhide
Goribullah, a hide trader of Natun Bazar area in Magura town, told the Dhaka Tribune that salt is a must to preserve skin. But price of crude salt has soared to the sky. Crude salt is being sold in local market at Tk15 per kg. On the other hand, tannery owners are conspiring to lessen skin price this year. They have proposed to fix up the purchase rate of cow hides at Tk35 to 40 outside of Dhaka this year, whereas, it was Tk40 to 45 outside of Dhaka last year, Goribullah elaborated. “So, how we will survive selling hides at lower prices while the preservation costs are high,” he said. Besides, they have to spend a lot for transporting hides to tanneries in Dhaka. Tapon Khan, another hide trader of the town, said: “Every year tannery owners deprive us by forming a syndicate. They offer us the price lower than our purchase rate. Moreover, though we purchase skin on cash payment, they buy from us on due. Last year, I sold skin of Tk5 lakh to the tannery owners and yet I am to be paid Tk3 lakh. So, this year, I have decided not to purchase skin.” Abu Sharif, general secretary of the district hide traders’ association, said though small hide traders in Magura had been passing a very hard time for the last several years, banks sanctioned loan only for tannery owners in Dhaka. He urged for a proper government policy for hide industry.
