Government ready to lift rice price capsA vendor shows well-milled rice sold for P41 per kilo and premium rice for P56 per kilo sold at a store in Commonwealth Market, Quezon City on September 6, 2023. “From our parameters, it seems that we are ready (to lift the price ceilings). The EO set the price cap on regular milled rice at P41 per kilogram and that of the well-milled rice at P45 per kilogram. These include providing logistics support to rice traders, financial assistance to Filipino farmers and unconditional rice price subsidies to poor consumers. In a statement, the Presidential Communications Office said rice prices have also gone down close to the price ceiling, with the average price of regular milled rice at about P41.91 per kilo and for well-milled rice at P45.95.
