New SRP on Agri Products in NCR Wet Markets Released by Department of Agriculture

The Department of Agriculture has issued the new suggested retail prices (SRP) on agriculture products in NCR wet markets.

On Friday (November 27, 2020), the Agriculture Department released a new set of suggested retail prices for basic agricultural products in wet markets in the National Capital Region. However, supermarkets are excluded from the SRP.

Agriculture Secretary William Dar signed the DA Administrative Circular (AC) No. 17 with the aim to guide the Filipino consumers and retailers regarding the updated SRP. He also said that the update is necessary especially amid the COVID-19 pandemic and after series of calamities hit the country.

“As changing cost structures in the supply chain require updating to allow retailers to realize reasonable profit, while ensuring that consumers are protected from profiteering,” DA said.

The Agriculture Department said that SRP covers basic commodities such as rice, vegetables, fruits, spices, livestock, poultry, fish, and other items. The DA-AC 17 would remain in effect for two months.
