Dairy prices to increase
Starting this week, milk and dairy prices will increase in Costa Rica. Dos Pinos Cooperative, Costa Rica’s biggest dairy producer, hiked prices on most of its dairy products, as well as those from its Coronado brand.
According to the company, increases in production costs forced an adjustment of 2.28 percent on average.
With the increase, the price of a carton of milk jumped from ₡545 to ₡555 ($1.09-$1.11), while a bag of milk (leche en bolsa) increased from ₡280 to ₡290 ($0.56-$0.58).
Flavored milk, yogurt and cheese prices will also increase. The price of milk with a longer expiration date will remain the same.
Inflation on dairy products from September 2012 to February 2013 is 3.17 percent, which according to the company is “lower than the country’s inflation, which reached 3.92 percent during the same period.”
