Dominican Today - SANTO DOMINGO- A pound of chicken should be no higher than RD$43. 0 and unfair commercial practices which jeopardize consumers will not be tolerated, is the crux of an agreement Consumer Protection Agency (Pro-Consumidor) and local poultry farms, with representatives of major supermarket chains and business leaders present.  “The pound of chicken can be sold for 40, 38 or 42, but not more than 43 pesos. We’ll enforce Article 419 of the Penal Code on merchants who sell it for more than 43 pesos, which establishes penalties for speculation,“ said Pro Consumidor director Altagracia Paulino.  She said supermarkets can sell a pound of chicken up to 45 pesos since they have other expenses. “Fresh chicken at the supermarket is more expensive than all other outlets, don’t buy there, go to the butcher. “  Agreement The agreement comes just one day after Paulino threatened to call “a day without chicken“ boycott to force vendors, middlemen and farmers to lower its price The official added that the details of the agreement will be announced Monday. Representatives of the Grupo Ramos, Bravo Supermarkets, Mercatodo, National Poultry Commission, the Agriculture Ministry, Centro Cuesta Nacional among other chains attended The meeting.
