While these reduced prices may provide relief to consumers, concerns linger about whether retailers will align with the new government rates.

Local vendors often charge prices higher than the official rates, leaving consumers with limited options but to pay the inflated costs. This adjustment in poultry prices is expected to alleviate financial pressures for households and offer more affordable choices. However, the effectiveness of these changes will depend on the cooperation of retailers in implementing the revised rates.
