HCMC – From Monday all kinds of pork enlisted in the price stabilization program in HCMC will be cut by VND1,000-3,000 a kilo, while garden chicken prices in the same program will be increased by VND4,000 per kilo.

The price adjustments were the result of a meeting between representatives of related companies and the city’s Department of Finance last Friday.

As such, corporate participants in the price stabilization program will cut pork prices to between VND72,000 and VND93,000 a kilo from Monday.

The price cut of pork at present is reasonable as the price of live pigs has remained at VND45,000 per kilo recently as cited by Vissan general deputy director Tran Tan An.

Meanwhile, garden chicken prices will be increased up to VND59,000 a kilo from Monday. According to Pham Thi Ngoc Ha, director of San Ha Co. Ltd, the recent price spikes of fuel, salaries and packages have caused garden chicken meat prices to increase.
