Santo Domingo.- The National Institute for the Protection of Consumer Rights (Pro Consumidor) recently announced that a price comparison survey of basic food basket products in the Dominican Republic reveals that most commonly consumed foods have remained stable in recent weeks.

Eddy Alcántara, the executive director of Pro Consumidor, explained that a significant number of these products have maintained their prices, while others, particularly agricultural products, have seen reductions.

Alcántara noted that the few products experiencing price increases did so minimally, describing this as “the most favorable behavior this year.”

The survey, conducted across large and small supermarkets, warehouses, markets, and grocery stores, found that “the fundamental products of the basic food basket have had a favorable impact on consumers’ budgets.”

Among the products that have seen price reductions in large supermarkets are beans, pork leg, garlic, powdered milk, processed chicken, eggs, fresh pork chops, sardines, green pigeon peas, soybean oil, yams, pineapple, and grapes.

Additionally, prices for cassava, Manicera Margarine, select rice, olive oil, eggplant, Cubanela chili pepper, white potatoes, beef brisket, and bell pepper have also decreased in large supermarkets.

In small supermarkets, the prices of green pigeon peas, white fried cheese, smoked chops, and chicken have dropped, according to the survey.
