The kilo of the poultry product almost doubles its usual cost in the city of Arequipa.
The price of the egg is through the roof. The kilo of the poultry product almost doubles its usual cost in the city of Arequipa. Currently, it has the value of S/ 9 to S/10.
Six months ago, in the commercial platform Andrés Avelino Cáceres, the java of eggs was in S/12 and now they sell it in S/16. Likewise, the kilo doubled its value, since, previous months, it was between S/4.50 to S/5.
The price of food would have increased because the border with Bolivia is closed due to the protests in Puno. This does not allow the entry of trucks that transport the corn that the birds consume.
Chicken is another food that has increased in price. Now it ranges between S/10 and S/11 per kilo. Celestina, a merchant from the Avelino Cáceres market, said that the price increase hurts because people no longer buy it.
