Uyum Gıda, a Turkish supermarket chain, has imported 2,000 cattle from Uruguay to fight high domestic Turkish meat prices.

The retailer plans to slaughter the 4.5 million Turkish Liras worth of cattle after feeding them for up to 180 days, it said in a written statement Tuesday.

The cattle were loaded on ships on Jan. 22 at a port in the Urugayan capital of Montevideo and are to be delivered at Turkey’s İzmir Port between Feb. 12 and 15, the statement said.
