PIA Press Release

Capiceņos assured of sufficient rice, agri products

by Jemin B. Guillermo

Roxas City (7 October) -- Capiz has sufficient supply of rice and agricultural products.

During the Provincial Price Coordinating Council meeting of Capiz yesterday, National Food Authority Assistant Provincial head Jobe Chua disclosed that the province has enough supply of rice.

Chua said NFA has 202,715 bags of rice that would last for the next 30 days based on the daily requirement of Capiz.

On the other hand, Bureau of Agricultural Statistics Provincial Manager Eric Piansay said that the rice inventory for households in the province is recorded at 362,164 bags which is also equivalent to more than 54 days.

"Capiz has also enough rice stock in the commercial sector," Piansay said, adding that many areas in the province are still harvesting their palay.

Likewise Provincial Agriculturist Sylvia dela Cruz said that the price of agricultural and fishery products remains stable.

Dela Cruz stressed that the price of rice still ranges from P34 to P40 kilograms for well-milled and P25 to P33 per kilogram for regular milled rice.

She said that the price of pork and dressed chicken is pegged at P150 and P115 per kilogram, respectively, while meat remains at P180 per kilogram.

Dela Cruz also said that no abnormal changes on the prices of vegetables, fish and fruits were noted.

Meanwhile, Provincial Board member Esteban Evan Contreras, who represented Gov. Victor Tanco during the PPCC meeting, urged members of the council to have close monitoring of prices of manufactures and agricultural products amidst the declaration of the entire country under the state of national calamity.

Contreras said that the proper authorities must also ensure the enforcement of price control on the mandated basic commodities especially that many Capiceņos are also buying in bulk here for donation to victims of typhoon Ondoy and Pepeng in the National Capital Region and other provinces.
