The Costa Rica News (TCRN) – The price of Don Pedro dried beans went down from ¢150 to ¢210 for February.
The packaging cost for 900 grams of black beans went from ¢1,250 to ¢1,100, while the suggested price of red beans is down from ¢1,890 to ¢1,680.
The chief market director for Kani Nineteen One, Rocío Mora, said that the Costa Rican government’s decision to import beans and improved weather conditions are the main factors that allowed these discounts.
Mora also said they not intend to raise the price of beans, as long as the current conditions are maintained.
The executive director of the National Association of Bean Manufacturers Bean (ANIFRI), Alejandro Monge, said they have no knowledge if these price reductions will occur in other companies.
Other distributors of beans in the country such as Uncle Pelon and La Maquila Lama have not made any statements about lowering their product prices. (Amelia Rueda)
