Capicenos assured of enough, affordable food supplies

by Jemin B. Guillermo

Roxas City (26 September) -- Capiceņos are assured of stable supply of rice, meat, vegetables and other foodstuff until the yearend.

Bureau of Agricultural Statistics (BAS) Provincial Head Eric Piansay said that the supply and prices of agricultural products remain stable until December this year.

Despite the dry spell in some parts of the country, good harvest was even noted on palay and corn production in Capiz this harvest season.

The National Food Authority (NFA) here earlier said that there is also affordable and sufficient supply of rice in the province through the various Tindahan Natin and Bigasan ng Bayan outlets.

Agriculture Secretary Arthur Yap has also assured the public of stable supply of rice, vegetables, chicken and other basic food items this Christmas season despite the prolonged drought that had struck Luzon.

Yap said that the NFA has already accounted for the rice supply of rice for the rest of the year and has already ascertained that there will be enough chicken for this Christmas season.

Pork would be in abundant supply this season, as the recent outbreak of hog cholera in Bulacan had no impact on the supply of meat in the country because the disease was quickly contained and confined only to a small portion of hog farms in the province.

Meanwhile, the prevailing price of pork in Capiz ranges from P100.00 to P120.00 per kilogram, while the price of dressed chicken remains at P102.00 per kilogram. (PIA) [top]
