Consumers in the province of Aklan are affected of garlic price hike in the country.
Asst. Provincial Agriculturist Salomi David of Department of Agriculture Aklan said that garlic has reached P300.00 per kilo in the province, and is expected to further increase.
David also said that supply of garlic in Aklan is being imported from Manila, thus affecting its retail price.
David on the other hand added that ongoing weekly monitoring is being made not only for garlic but also for other products.
Malacañang has appealed to the public to bear with the price hikes for they cannot control this due to market forces’ dictate.
