ISLAMABAD: The prices of essential kitchen items have witnessed an upward trend during this week past against the previous week, revealed a survey carried out by Business Recorder, here on Saturday.

The wholesalers and retailers at various markets said that the prices of most of the items remained on the high side. They said that the current rains and floods have disrupted supply chain, further fueling inflation.

The recent increase in petrol and electricity prices as well as fuel adjustment resulted in an increase in input cost as well as transportation charges which are passed on and resulted in raise in prices of almost entire kitchen items, they added.

The survey noted that prices of chicken, tomatoes, onions, potatoes, rice, pulse moong, pulse gram, wheat flour, salt powdered, eggs, powdered milk, and mutton increased during the week past as compared to the previous week while decline was observed in the prices of masoor, and some vegetable ghee, bananas, mustard oil, and sugar.

The survey observed an increase in chicken price as it went up from Rs7,800 to Rs7,850 per 40kg in the wholesale market, which in retail, is being sold at Rs280/285 per kg against Rs270-275 per kg, while chicken meat price went from Rs430-440 per kg to Rs450 per kg.
