Sufficient Deliveries of Agricultural Products in the Metropolis
Period Covered: April 25 – May 03, 2012
Continuous and sufficient inflow of agricultural food commodities in various markets in Metro Manila was observed this week.
Retail trading during the reference week favored consumers as most prices leveled at previous week’s quotations. Other indicators even registered price cuts.
Rice, cooking oil, poultry and meat products were sold at last week’s prices.
Prices per kilogram remained at P130 for dressed chicken; P260 beef rump; P170 pork ham (pigue) and P180 pork belly (liempo).
Price of regular milled commercial rice continued to prevail at P30 per kilogram and that of well-milled at P35 per kilogram. Price of 375 ml. bottled cooking oil was pegged at P30.
Based on the latest price monitoring, acquisition cost of a fifty-kilogram bag of refined sugar ranged from P2,040 to P2,120 while that of brown sugar was from P1,610 up to P1,700.
Price increment of sugar at bulk trade apparently was passed on to consumers. Last week’s P44 per kilogram prevailing retail price of white sugar increased to P46 and the P36 per kilogram selling price of brown sugar inched up to P38.
Vegetables were either offered at lower quotations or stood firm at last week’s tags. Carrot was the only indicator vegetable that commanded higher price. The P40 per kilogram prevailing price at retail last week went up to P50 this week.
The favorable weather condition has been conducive for fishermen to increase their fishing activities. Sufficient supply of various marine fish species was noted in the surveyed Metro markets. Milkfish and roundscad were cheaper by P10 and P20 per kilogram, respectively.
Calamansi and mango were notably abundant and sold at lower prices at both trade levels during the week. Both fruits posted a P10 per kilogram discount at retail counters.
