MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Agriculture (DA) started its market visits yesterday to ensure that the supply and prices of commodities are stable for the holidays.

DA Undersecretary for Operations Roger Navarro led the first round of random market inspections around Metro Manila, starting with Quezon City.

Navarro assured the public that there is a sufficient supply of meat, poultry, vegetables and fish when he inspected the Mega Q-Mart and Kamuning Public Market in Quezon City.

He said that aside from market inspections, the DA is discussing with other government agencies possible interventions to ensure that prices remain stable.

He said that the DA is coordinating with the National Price Coordinating Council to ensure that imported goods also do not flood the market and undermine local producers.

Representatives from the Department of Trade and Industry-Fair Trade Enforcement Bureau also joined the market inspections.
