Sopa de Pata de Pollo

Beef price up 38 percent


María Cristina Iglesias, Minister of Light Industries and Trade Tuesday said the price control on meat would continue in force, but prices were increased by 38 percent in average for the whole meat production chain, including cattle-raisings and warehouses.

Price increases will be implemented for whole chicken, chicken legs and breasts, as well as eggs and powder milk.

Poultry and eggs are to soar 45.3 percent in average compared to their previous price, while milk prices jumped 5.6 percent.

New prices are effective as of Wednesday.

The market is expected to react, as beef prices, for instance, are 45 percent below current market prices.

So, I guess the poor will have to eat, Sopa de Pata de Pollo!
