paid in the gondola
about 525 percent more for agricultural products than the producer did in November, according to a report prepared by
The Argentinian Committee for Medium-sized Enterprises (CAME).

According to the agency, the price difference between origin and destination in this type of food rose 5.8 points in the same month.

This situation also occurs in conjunction with a decline in sales, especially in fruits such as orange, mandarin, red pepper and pumpkin.

The data comes from the origin and destination price index (IPOD), which the sector's regional economies deepen based on what is published in the online newspapers of the largest supermarkets in Argentina.

For agricultural products, the difference between what the producer was charged and what went into the gondola was 566 percent, which is an increase of 7 points compared with the previous month.

The larger holes in November were: the orange, which multiplied its price by 13.7 times since it left the field; the red pepper with a multiplication of 8.57 times; The red apple with 8.11 times Mandarin with 6.86 times and the bulb with 6.54 times.

The products with minor differences between one sales phase and the other were eggs and chicken meat, as the consumer only paid 2.51 times more than the producer received, chard (3.12 times more) and the round tomato (about 3.48 times).

Dante Javier Grigolatto, Vice President of the Citrus Federation of Entre Ríos (FeCiER), said: "Many entrant producers choose to market directly on the market, and sometimes they do not even sell what they have, resulting in the forging of the fruits they have abandoned. "

And he stated: "The entry has risen a lot in recent months due to the devaluation, and as they can not update the selling prices, they are lost."

The producer's share in the food's final price was reduced in November to 22 percent on average, compared to 22.9% of the previous month.
