Beef price is on the rise due to transport costs, according to the interview with the beef sellers’ circle.
From K 17,000 a viss three days ago, the price increased by K 1,000 and became unstable.
“Beef price has increased. Its retail price is K 17,000-K18,000 a viss. In our area, it is cheaper. In the downtown area, it sells for over K20,000. We have just started increasing it to K18,000 today. It is because of transport. There are high transport costs on the way. Our wholesaler hasn’t talked about further increases, but there is no prospect of prices going down,” said a beef shop owner in Yangon.
There is a difference between the price of pure meat and that of beef tendons, the latter costing K 13,000 per viss.
Beef price has gradually increased from K 16,000 a viss since the pre-Thingyan period, and with a high price, there are concerns for fewer consumers.
Beef is a common meat with high consumption in Myanmar, which also exports frozen beef. ­— Thit Taw/ZN/ED
