Over 450,000 pieces of rawhide were collected in the first two days of Eid-ul-Azha, said Bangladesh Tanners Association (BTA) Chairman Shaheen Ahamed.

"Tanners have so far collected over 450,000 pieces of rawhide across the country . . . as per our plan, we will continue to collect the rawhide," he said at a press conference held at the Imperial Amin Ahmed Centre in Dhaka's Dhanmondi on Saturday.

He said about 900,000-950,000 pieces of rawhides are likely to be collected from across the country this year.

Replying to a question on whether traders are buying rawhides at the rate fixed by the government, the BTA chairman claimed that the tanners are buying rawhides at rates set by the government.

Ahead of the Eid-ul-Azha, the government fixed the prices of salt-applied cow rawhide at Tk50 to Tk55 per square foot (sft) in Dhaka and Tk45 to Tk48 per sft outside Dhaka.
