Popular Boycott Based on Unfounded Information, Moroccan Government Says

Moroccan government has reacted to a boycott campaign that targeted three leading companies producing gas, bottled water and milk saying the boycott was based on fake news.

The government’s spokesperson Mustapha Khalfi told reporters in Rabat that the campaign was based on unfounded information, saying that prices of the three products are reasonable and have not been raised for ages despite rise in production costs.

The government vowed to bring those who spread fake news to incite the boycott to justice.

Boycott advocates see the government as siding with the boycotted firms. Some boycotters say that although prices have not been raised, the purchasing power has been undermined with inflation.

The logic of boycotters is that by refraining to buy the products of a leading company, it will lower prices pushing other competitors to follow suit.

The Government however is concerned at the long-term impact of such a boycott on the economy and the dairy sector, which employs 460,000 people.

The minister of General Affairs has even raised a potential impact of the boycott campaign on foreign investment.

Observers see that the boycott campaign may abate in Ramadan as demand on milk is usually higher.

  1. I’m 100% with the Moroccan people. I’m so proud of you for boycotting these companies. Yes it may affect local farmers, but what stunned me is the fact that these million Dollar companies are paying their farmers pennies. 200 MAD a week 😡, which is roughly $20 a week. This is not employment, this is slavery. The companies don’t care about the farmers, they are looking for their best interest. That 200 MAD is what I pay our helper on a daily basis, and you corrupted ass holes pay that to your farners? I love our king dearly, but I disguise our government because 98% of them are corrupted. Let’s open an investigation and see how these government officials became millionaires. It’s clear to me that this is chaab’s money, not yours. Let that milk spoil, and let all the other companies who also increased their prices to all go bankrupt. I doubt that would happen because all they have to do is create some type of new law to cover their losses. I’m more angry that these farmers only make $20 a week. What era are we living in. What happened to humanity? Honestly, the people are better off if they cut off dairy completely. The dairy from back in the days is not the same as the dairy we are consuming today, and for this reason I stopped eating any type of dairy. Cows are been injected with hormones, the milk has been pasteurized and so forth. Now the pharmaceutical companies will have to suffer as well because less and less people will get sick. If you don’t believe me, do research yourself of why dairy is bad for you or try to see if you can go on a tour at Mr. corrupt’s dairy factory and see what you are putting in your body. Also raybi that everyone craves and loves and that included me until I educated myself on the additives that are added to consumer products like Raybi Jamila. What do you think
    Gives it that color? They add the toxic food colorant to it to make us drool over it and makes it appealing to the consumer. I can almost guarantee you that these corrupted owners of these factories don’t even allow their families to consume their own products because they know the health risks associated with ingesting them. Now I can almost gaurantee sidhoum Ali water won’t pass my lab test. It probably contains parasites and other harmful toxins from the plastic itself. Of course pharmaceutical companies have to keep up with the increase demand of the sick, and the more we advance in technology, the more we create problems for ourselves. Many food supplies now are genetically modified to be able to meet the demand of its consumers, but we never paused for once to question ourselves what actually goes in the products we consume. We are too quick however to ask a doctor what’s the side effect of a particular Medina that we are given, but we yet to ask one question about our food supply. I’m Moroccan living in the US and I’m supporting my Moroccan people from my second home away from home.
