Prices of poultry products in Negros Occidental markets have increased due to high demand based on the latest monitoring of the Provincial Veterinary Office (PVO).
The average market price of dressed chicken in April is P155.47 per kilogram, a P2.97 increase from March. The high demand of poultry products is attributed to many fiesta celebrations in the province during summertime.
“Local and foreign visitors hugely contribute to a significant increase in demand for livestock and poultry products,” said Provincial Veterinarian Renante Decena.
Meanwhile, the average egg price slightly dropped to P6.64 per piece in April from P6.70 per piece in March.Prices
