During the upcoming Eid-ul-Azha, the total demand for salt in the country is around 100,000 metric tons

Bangladesh Small and Cottage Industries Corporation (BSCIC) has taken initiative to ensure uninterrupted supply of salt to dealers, wholesalers and retailers for proper preservation and processing of sacrificial animal rawhide during the upcoming Eid-ul-Azha.

As per the directives of the Ministry of Industries, BSCIC has already issued instructions to the salt mill owners to ensure supply to the dealers, wholesalers and retailers by processing the salt round the clock, said a press release on Monday.

Moreover, the district offices of BSCIC have been directed to ensure adequate salt stock, the release reads.

The district offices are preparing lists of district- and upazila-level dealers and wholesalers of salt in collaboration with concerned district administrations.

Once it is prepared, the list will be provided to various orphanages, union parishads and other organizations involved in the preservation and processing of sacrificial animal rawhide.

According to BSCIC, at present the total reserve of edible and industrial salt in the country is 1.273 million metric tons, including 1.093 million metric tons in salt fields and 0.18 million metric tons in salt mills.

During the upcoming Eid-ul-Azha, the total demand for salt in the country is around 100,000 metric tons. With the current stock, it will be possible to meet the demand of salt in the next six to seven months.
