The price monitoring task force of Tayabas City’s City Price Coordinating Council (CPCC) visited four random stores in Tayabas as well as the public market. This activity was done on a monthly basis as part of Tayabas City-price council’s initiative Bantay-i to ensure that the prevailing price in the city was compliant with the suggested retail price and would not surpass the price range for each product.

During the monitoring, it was observed that the prices in each store were compliant and stable as compared to last month’s monitoring. The prevailing price of poultry, meat, and chicken is stable. Upon checking, it was justified since some of it was locally sourced.

These report findings will be reported to the City Mayor, as Chair of CPCC, who will be subjected to review and recommendations on the measures needed to ensure that prices of the items will remain stable. ♦
