TANDAG CITY, Dec. 26 (PIA) – The National Food Authority (NFA) Provincial Office in Surigao del Sur assured an ample rice supply for the entire duration of the long holiday break.

A total of 102,449 bags in stock inventory are available in all their warehouses located in Cantilan, Bislig City and Tandag City, NFA Provincial Manager May Sara Atomar said.

These are broken down into local rice at 5,171 bags and imported ones at 97,278 bags.

Atomar added that NFA rice remains to be sold at P27 per kilo for regular-milled and P32 for well-milled.

On the other hand, the modal retail price of commercial rice ranges from P39-P47 per kilo depending on the variety, she indicated.


In NFA parlance, modal price means the most frequently occurring price in a particular market, it was learned. (NGBT/Radyo ng Bayan/PIA-Surigao del Sur)
