The price of chicken thigh and breast rose 6% and 4%, respectively, in May as compared to the same month in 2013, according to the índice de precios al consumidor (IPC) del Instituto Nacional de Estadística y Censos (INEC) – consumer price index at the Institute of Statistics and Census.

Chicken is a product in high demand in Costa Rica. 71% of Costa Ricans consume chicken at least three times a week, according to a survery by Unimer for La Nacion, which analyzed the eating habits of Ticos.

“The main source for higher costs of chicken is grains such as corn and soybeans, that must be improted and paid for in dollars”, said Jorge Calderón, Cargill’s director of corporate affairs for Central America.

Walmart Costa Rica cites internal variables such as fuel and electricity influencing price adjustments.
