According to Jornal de Angola, based on a survey carried out at the Congolese and São Paulo warehouses of the Angolisar group, the packaging of 10 kilograms of chicken thighs by the USA brand has increased significantly: it currently costs 10 thousand kwanzas, contrary to the previous 7500 kwanzas at which was being marketed in the last two months.
The same amount of AJC brand chicken thigh also saw a slight increase. According to a survey by Jornal de Angola, 10 kilograms of this brand went from 9100 kwanzas to 9750 kwanzas.
Also within chicken meat, there was also an increase in the packaging of hard chicken, which went from 15,000 kwanzas to 18,800 kwanzas.
In the period in question, there were also increases in the value of rice: 25 kilograms of this product went from about 6,500 to 7,500 kwanzas to be marketed from 8,000 to 9,000 kwanzas, writes Jornal de Angola.
The same amount of wheat flour remained unchanged (between 11,600 and 15,500 kwanzas), while 25 kilograms of cornmeal are being sold at 13,000 kwanzas.
In turn, 12 liters of vegetable oil did not increase (price is between 13 and 15 thousand kwanzas, depending on the brand) and 25 kilograms of pinto beans are worth 16 thousand kwanzas.
But it's not all bad news, according to a survey by the same newspaper, the value of pasta packaging, in the São Paulo area, is being sold between 200 and 300 kwanzas, contrary to the previous 400 kwanzas.
It was also possible to observe reductions in the cost of a kilo of cornmeal and bombó, which are on sale at 500 and 250 kwanzas, respectively. Before, the average price was between 600 and 800 kwanzas.
Jornal de Angola also added that, despite the slight increases, some commercial spaces continue to apply low prices for basic basket goods.
Fears around the post-election period led many to decide not to import the goods, leaving the existing stock available, thus justifying this rise, writes the same newspaper.
It should be noted that there are other products with stable prices, with the Strategic Food Reserve playing a leading role in this balance.
