In a statement published in one of Sunday's papers, the Beef and Dairy Producers Association of Jamaica said imported beef burgers are being sold locally at questionable prices.

Based on the published statement, these burgers are being sold below $325 per kilogram.

According to the association, the ex factory price for these products is well below internationally quoted prices.

The association says it strongly opposes the granting of any waiver or duty concession on imported beef.
