Through an agreement with the Centro de Almaceneros Minoristas, Baristas, Autoservicistas y Afines del Uruguay (Cambadu, in Spanish), consumers of establishments of 100 square meters or less will be able to acquire products in weight and quantity adjusted to their economic possibilities.

Daniel González, the general prosecutor of the commune, informed that the fractioning has to be done in view of the public and the industry will be allowed to pack up to 15 kilos for retail sale.

He also emphasized that the measure may be applied to low-perishable products authorized by the Food Regulation Service of the MI, which implies having assured the hygienic-sanitary quality.

Montevideo, with the largest population in the country, will be the second territory, after Canelones, both led by the Frente Amplio, to recover a former retail system for poor strata, little used in previous years of economic growth.

Its reactivation is due to inflation, the rise in prices of the basic food basket, loss of purchasing power of salaries and pensions, and increases in poverty and social inequality.
