Chicken imports fail to trim prices
Santo Domingo.- Despite the green light for chicken imports by the Government to influence a drop in the price, that has not registered a drop, indicated merchants told El Dia.
The price of chicken continues to sell between 70 pesos and 80 pesos, said Aridio Reynoso, while Jennifer Gil, also a retail chicken seller in the Cristo Rey market, said that the clientele has decreased by 20% due to the increases.
Likewise, she indicated that the increase has two months and does not show a reduction in its costs, so they have had to buy the chicken at 70 to sell it at 75 pesos.
In a sense, this is good. The meat industry is a vile one. One must do all they can to reduce their meat consumption. In the amounts most people consume meat, it is unhealthy… conducive to heart disease.
