JABARNEWS | CIANJUR – The price of chicken meat in the Cianjur traditional market rose again to Rp. 40,000 per kilogram from the previous price of Rp. 35,000 per kilogram.
According to the Secretary of the Cianjur Cooperative, MSME, Trade and Industry Office (Diskoperidagin), Wahyu Ginanjar, the increase in meat prices was due to a decline in production at the farmer level after expensive feed.
Wahyu said that the increase in chicken prices which continued to climb had occurred since the last two weeks. However, the increase is quite high in the last two days.
“The price increase is because farmers reduce production due to the high price of feed, while the level of purchase increases,” said Wahyu in Cianjur, Wednesday (29/6/2022).
Although it had dropped to Rp. 32,000 per kilogram, the increase occurred again and is expected to rise until the feast of sacrifice,” he added.
