Notes on price ceiling of PorK as of March 8, 2021

  1. It is working to bring down prices below the anomalous 400 to 450 a kilo for the months of December 2020 and January 2021, albeit not the prescribed amount in the EO.
  2. The consumers especially the bottom 30 pct of the household either don’t buy or buy less pork , and that is desirable but alarming as the right of the consumers access to reasonable price of basic necessity is slotwly eroded by an expensive pork products.
  3. Price ceiling at the present ceiling should be maintained till the end of the 60th period . We oppose adjusting price ceiling at higher amounts.
  4. Maybe DA may study to expand price ceiling to include Central Luzon and Calabarzon provinces.

Thank you .
