To assure consumers that there are readily available and affordable supplies of pork and chicken, Department of Agriculture (DA) Undersecretary for Livestock Deogracias Victor Savellano visited the meat section of major supermarkets on May 28, 2024.

The DA official, together with North Star Meat Merchant Inc. President Anthony Ng, checked the meat prices at WalterMart, SM Hypermarket, and SM Supermarket, all located in North EDSA.

The major supermarkets offer whole chicken at P160/kilogram (kg), pork liempo at P345/kg, and pork kasim at P265/kg that are lower than the weekly average retail price in NCR markets based on the DA Bantay Presyo report. For the period May 20–25, 2024, the Bantay Presyo report shows the average retail price of whole chicken is at P189.14/kg, liempo at P379.03/kg, and kasim at P338.26/kg. ### (photos by Joseph Henry Elamparo, DA-AFID)
