Bolivian minister warns about speculation in meat prices

Bolivian minister warns about speculation in meat prices

La Paz, May 6 (Prensa Latina) Bolivia's Minister of Productive Development and Plural Economy, Nestor Huanca, on Friday warned that dairy, pig and poultry farmers, to whom he guaranteed corn supply, are changing prices.

“The national government, by safeguarding food security and sovereignty, complies with the supply of corn to the national livestock sector, in this case to the poultry, pig and dairy sector,” the minister said.

Huanca insisted that the Food Production Support Company (EMAPA) guarantees the supply of grain to this sector.

The minister told the press that the amount of corn allocated to the pork sector increased from 30 to 45 tons and to the poultry sector from 30 to 58 tons, according to the capacity of each production unit.

He said that in the current agricultural campaign EMAPA is expecting to stockpile over 100,000 tons of food to meet the domestic demand in a strategic way.

When talking to the people, Huanca urged not to be surprised by the possible price increase of chicken and pork, taking into account that the national government guarantees the supply of corn for the production of these goods.

“I want to ratify and tell Bolivian people, housewives who consume these products, not to be concerned or surprised by rumors that seek to confuse you,” he said.
