Chicken unaffordable at US$1.66/P
Santo Domingo.- A pound of chicken had never reached the unaffordable price of RD$65.0 (US$1.66) as occurred after the May 20 election, said the Consumer Protection Agency Wednesday.
It said the clearest evidence is that the average price of fresh chicken over the past two years has been steady at RD$43.00 and RD $ 44.00 in supermarkets, grocery stores, butcher shops and markets.
In a statement, the Agency said insignificant changes in commodities prices abroad to increase the sector’s production costs haven’t occurred either.
It adds that a pound of fresh chicken ranged from RD$42.56 to RD$46.05 in 2010, and from RD$43.61 to $47.94 in 2011
