The Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) has announced that as the holiday season nears, there will be no increase in the majority of noche buena products.

Lilian Salonga, DTI director for consumer protection and advocacy, said in an interview that last September 27, they conferred with manufacturers of noche buena products and where the department was given the assurance that there is an adequate supply of noche Buena products for Christmas.

Manufactures of pasta, tomato sauce, and fruit cocktail also assured the DTI that there will be no price increase until the end of the year.

However, of the noche buena products only two brands of ham and one brand of keso de bola will increase.

“Tuloy ang pasko we don’t have price increase on majority items that we serve in our nochebuena table,” Salonga said

These noche buena products includes ham, spaghetti pasta, spaghetti sauce, mayonnaise, fruit cocktail, salad macaroni, elbow macaroni, all purpose cream, tomato sauce, and cheese.

The DTI also assured that these products will be closely monitored to assure that these products are sold within the Suggested Retail Price. (R.G. A A. Go)
