DA releases new agri goods SRP list for Metro Manila

THE DEPARTMENT of Agriculture has announced a new suggested retail price (SRP) list for agricultural products sold in wet markets across Metro Manila in line with the declaration of a Luzon-wide state of calamity following the recent series of typhoons. Agriculture Secretary William D. Dar signed on Thursday Administrative Circular No. 17 implementing the new SRP list for selected food products. Mr. Dar cited the need to control prices for basic goods so as not to worsen the difficulties experienced by Filipino consumers affected by the coronavirus pandemic and the impact of the disasters.  “The SRP shall be applicable within the wet markets of Metro Manila, to the exclusion of supermarkets,” Mr. Dar said. Under Republic Act No. 7581 or the Price Act, the government is mandated to ensure that prime commodities are available at all times and are retailed at reasonable prices without impeding on the fair return of investment for businesses. The Agriculture department and other government agencies recently implemented a price freeze on selected agricultural and fishery commodities after the state of calamity declaration.
