SRA objects to
sugar price control


A Department of Trade and Industry official yesterday insisted on making refined sugar available at P43 a kilo in the retail market for the next two weeks under a “Pamaskong Handog na Asukal” program, Sugar Regulatory Administrator Rafael Coscolluela said.

Undersecretary Zenaida Maglaya insisted on keeping the prices at P43 a kilo but prices of sugar in the retail market have been selling at P44 to P45 a kilo lately. Trade and Industry Secretary Peter Favila has warned of a possible price freeze on sugar.

“We expressed our objection to the DTI's insistence on pinning down prices because the current retail prices of sugar are not unreasonable, they are just following world market trends,” Coscolluela said. moremoremore
